Beating the United States in the Race for Nanotechnology

Abstract:
While politicians in the United States are busy bickering about stem cell ethics and whether creationism should be taught in public schools, other countries are pumping so much money into biotech and nanotechnology that researchers can practically light their Bunsen burners with $1,000 bills.

On monday at the 3rd International Conference on Bioengineering and Nanotechnology at the Biopolis in Singapore, Foreign Minister George Yeo gave a ten minute speech (watch it below) about the importance of investing in nanotechnology.
