Innovation as the foundation of economic dynamism and prosperity is a complex process involving contributions from various players. In particular it deals with the transformation of basic science into rival proposals that improve the well-being of mankind. For more than 200 years technological innovation has driven economic development. All growth is based on innovation. The process of innovation involves complementary contributions from science, from entrepreneurs, from the financial markets, from the investment community and from government.

Provide access to financial literacy so everyone has the opportunity to be an entrepreneur

After the global economic crisis, we have an entire generation of young people who are on the cusp of some of the most important decisions of their lifetime, but who, in many countries, are facing dire employment prospects. It is our responsibility to give them the tools that they need to become the new individual and community assets of economic energy that the world needs to create a new generation of jobs for all. Education in financial literacy should be a key part of that agenda.
