Harvard’s ‘wise men’ tell Silicon Valley: Our country is losing its competitiveness
Re: Jan Rivkin, William Sahlman & Willy Shih
It’s no secret that the professors are raising the issue of competitiveness just before a presidential election. But their message, based on reports created over the past 18 months by 15 Harvard Business School professors, wasn't partisan. In an October 2011 survey of 10,000 HBS alumni across the economy, about 71 percent of respondents expect U.S. competitiveness to decline over the next three years, with workers' living standards under greater pressure.
