State of Innovation

Patents and Innovation Economics

Pikes Peak Economic Club May 4 Meeting

Local author, “The Decline and Fall of the American Entrepreneur: How Little Known Laws and Regulation are Killing Innovation”.

Dale B. Halling is a patent attorney located in Colorado Springs. His book, “The Decline and Fall of the American Entrepreneur: How Little Known Laws and Regulation are Killing Innovation“, explains that innovation is the key to getting out economy growing  again. Unfortunately, since 2000 we have passed a number of laws and regulations that are killing innovation in the US. The incredible innovation of the 90s was based on technology start-up companies built on intellectual capital, financial capital, and human capital. All three of the pillars have been under attack since 2000. Our patent laws have been weakened reducing the value of intellectual capital. Sarbanes Oxley has made it impossible to go public reducing financial capital for start-ups and the FASB rules on stock options have made it harder to attract human capital to start-ups.
