Dr Craig Barrett’s 3 pillars of a Smart Economy

Dr Craig Barrett speaks at the Royal Irish Academy Feb 2010I was delighted to attend a fascinating lecture by Craig Barrett, ex-CEO of Intel, on Monday February 8th at the Royal Irish Academy. Dr Barrett outlined his advice to Ireland if the country wishes to pursue its stated ambition of becoming a pre-eminent 21st century knowledge economy. His advice, delivered in his simple and direct style was organised into 3 pillars that needs to be in place for a smart economy to thrive:

1. Smart People

2. Smart Ideas

3. Right Environment (as created by Government Policy)

Dr. Barrett’s parting words for the country were – “If you want to win, you must choose to compete”.
