Instead, there were no firm and specific outcomes-related commitments. There were no ambitious deadlines. Investing in a series of projects should lead to some progress, but there are no demanding timelines. A belief that an outcome will occur is far short of a commitment to that outcome. A belief is about risk minimization. A commitment entails risktaking, as a nation puts its reputation on the line.
All said, given the very distant timeframes and absence of commitments, it appears that the new strategy is one of investing in a variety of projects but leaving it to the normal rate of technological change to bring about outcomes related to those investments. There is nothing bold about such a course, except perhaps in the fiscal sense, as there is no effort to accelerate the rate of technological change, much less to seek to achieve revolutionary breakthroughs.
