U.S. Falling Behind in Global 'Brain Race'

And last week President Bush joined the choir, calling in his State of the Union address for a $136 billion boost in science education and research over the next 10 years. "We cannot afford to be complacent. In a dynamic world economy, we are seeing new competitors, like China and India," he said.
