Quote of the Day: Human Potential and Society

Now here is something interesting -- and TRUE:
The most precious resource in the world economy is human genius, which we may define as the ability to devise significant inventions that enhance survival and prosperity. At any one time, genius is embodied in just a few score thousand people, a creative minority that accounts for most human accomplishment and wealth. Cities and nations rise and thrive when they welcome entrepreneurial and technical genius; when they overtax, criminalize, or ostracize it, they wither.

This quotation actually comes from a piece about Israeli technology, R&D, and innovation.
