Someone please set up a second National Debt Clock? Only let this one show what the debt would be if we charged a minimal royalty for inventions we all paid for. Communications satellites, the Internet, pharmaceuticals, Telecom… Do you doubt we'd be in the black? Oh there were reasons not to charge. But the salutary lesson would be clear: stop calling government & science enemies. They are friends of enterprise.
