About the Program
Ms. Crawford argues that the U.S. has lost its competitive advantage in the knowledge-based economy, because it is no longer at the forefront of the internet revolution. Other countries have internet capabilities that are significantly faster and less expensive to use than in the States. This puts U.S. consumers at a distinct disadvantage and, she argues, it also threatens America's economic future. She discusses her findings with Andrew Blum, author of "Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet."
Susan Crawford is a fellow at the Roosevelt Institute, who, in 2009, served as Special Assistant to the President for Science Technology, and Innovation Policy. Ms. Crawford is a professor in Cardozo Law School's Intellectual Property & Information Law program and a member of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Council on Technology and Innovation.
