    Now stop stealing our stuff.  China should be embarrassed it has to stoop that low.

    Cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre.

    •  China's doing fine with innovation. (9+ / 0-)
      What's more, China has surpassed the United States in the number of patents filed, an important measure of how innovative an economy is. In 2011, the latest year for which data are available, 526,412 patents were filed in China, compared with 503,582 in the United States.

      No doubt many of those Chinese patents were filed by global companies looking to protect their products in China. But even in terms of patents filed by residents, China outpaced the United States, 112,347 to 108,626.

      The report says the Chinese government will continue to push for increased production from its researchers. It plans to increase the proportion of its gross domestic product spent on research and development from 1.75 percent in 2010 to 2.2 percent in 2015. (By comparison, the United States spent 2.79 percent of its GDP on research in 2010, the latest year for which data are available.) China wants to push for still more highly cited papers and patent ownership.
