This presentation is a summary of the report of the National Academies' Committee on Prospering in the Global Economy of the 21st Century, "Gathering Storm", and some of its subsequent response. The author was a member of this committee, which was created in 2005 to respond to the request by Senators Lamar Alexander and Jeff Bingaman, with endorsement of Representatives Sherwood Boehlert and Bart Gordon. The task of the committee was to delineate the top ten actions, in priority order, that federal policymakers could take to enhance the science and technology enterprise so that the US can successfully compete, prosper, and be secure in the global community of the 21st century.
