Ben Stein offers a dozen ways to stifle what gives this country an edge. He stops at a dozen only because it's a nice round number.
As a casual observer of what makes this country work and what stops it cold, I hereby offer a few suggestions on how we can ruin American competitiveness and innovation in the course of this century. I think the reader will agree with me that we are already far down the road on many of them.
Indeed, anyone reading his piece will no doubt agree that we are well on our way. How depressing.
