By 2050, the U.S. will only account for 18 percent of global R&D spending. Its share has already fallen to less than a third of what the world collectively spends. Dr. Arden Bement co-chaired the research project and spoke to Federal News Radio's DoD Reporter Jared Serbu. Read Jason's related story.
