Voting and Economic Asymmetry
July/August 2008 (vol. 28 no. 4)
pp. 2-3
The vast majority of presidential voters decide their votes on the basis of policies other than those that shape high-tech markets, but election results have enormous consequence for high tech. That asymmetry has been with us for many years, and it explains a lot of what we see in federal government policy. It shapes the tenor of elections, the prevalence of backroom decision making, and the type of policies for high-tech markets the US government makes.
Index Terms:
economics, politics, government policy toward high-tech, presidential election
