This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Entrepreneurial pulse

Trade policy and its impact on innovation in the U.S. gets a look on both sides of Capitol Hill this week. The House Judiciary Committee examines trade secret protection while the Senate Finance Committee explores trade rules to "level the playing field for U.S. companies and workers." Immigration is the topic in a couple committee hearings but they are focused on the problem of unaccompanied minors crossing the border rather than on anything related to high-skilled entrepreneurs -- which gives you a pretty good idea of where the immigration debate stands. Other topics covered by hearings include: digital health care, data mining and privacy, music licensing in a digital world, small energy businesses and more.
