In reality it is not that surprising. For innovation to thrive, you need competition and in the US there is a lack of competition in quite a few key industries... telecommunications/internet, big pharma and more. The places ahead of the US all have as far as I can see, very open economies where the only barriers of entry is financial.
Actually, I was going to suggest that our innovation, good ol' Yankee Inginuity, has been stifled to hell-n-gone by an over-reaching Left wing government.
