America will find opportunity in scarcity by Eric Schmidt
We now need to encourage investment in new high-technology industries such as clean energy and environmental technology. These are sectors we have lacked political leadership not just recently, but for decades.
The Internet, enables the open and free exchange of information, is critical to our future economic growth. It has already proved to be vital to entrepreneurs and America's small businesses, generate up to 80 per cent of new jobs in the US. But continuing this record will require a strong federal commitment to keeping the Internet open.

More than ever, we need a leader will look beyond the old thinking and orthodoxies and understands the importance of investment in ideas and technology for our future.
