Whether as individuals, or as corporations of course, and it goes without saying, as countries, the promotion of science and technology is an essential part of progress and an unbreakable link in development.
Thinking, for example, in strictly evolutionary terms, humans separate ourselves from the rest of the species in terms of evolution, due to the capabilities of our brains, which leads us as we progress to expand our capabilities with something very basic and transcendent like having the thumb versus others, which gave us room to translate many From thoughts that emerged from the brain thousands of years ago to actions.
Thus groups of ancient nomads and later civilizations were able to gradually carve stones to make arrowheads and spears, while the first wheels were formed and rods could be rubbed that generated fires that allowed us to live in inhospitable places, cook and drive. Away from other potentially dangerous species.
If it is one of our most important stages, something that we still assume is science and technology, that can do a lot for us and the progress we have made over the years, centuries, millennia … how much impact now?
Taking a real qualitative leap in time, we now see that modern theories of growth and economic development of nations indicate that the difference between the poor and the rich is explained in terms of spending on science, technology and innovation.
In this context, we see that investing in these branches and their more prominent outcomes is typical of high-income advanced economies, generating benign circles, towards broad-based progress, directed towards the needs and requirements of those countries, which are usually separate from those in the process. Development or with emerging economies, with an urgent need to promote this type of investment permanently and comprehensively evaluate the results.
Here, one of the points linking science and technology to democracy emerges, because by investing in these areas, in order to obtain an accurate measurement of the expected and obtained results, it necessarily requires a transparent exercise of resources, so that it is accurately identified how much and what has been spent.
Lack of transparency in investments in science and technology hinders their development, as is the case with other sectors, and thus leads to failure to achieve the desired goals.
In addition, when investment in science and technology is low, progress is limited, as it is unable to meet basic needs and leads to a lack of human capital needed to provide these types of solutions.
Es por ello que los países que sí invierten en ciencia y tecnología tienen un progreso en su población que los lleva a desarrollar “mente de obra”, mientras que, en las naciones subdesarrolladas generateras conservateras primatus de provement Working hand. “
