Is There a Future In Being Inventive?

By December 30, 2013

Follow me on:

Inventive MindsWhy are young Americans failing to realize the potential of careers as inventors? Take it from me being an inventor is the rock star choice of any career in science or technology. So why are smart, young adults who consider themselves creative and love math and science, not loving innovation. Come on children, invent something and make this world a better place.

Dear Sir/Madame;

I believe I know one of the reasons inventive people are not eager to invent: is simply because you need lots of money to Patent or apply . I have two inventions at this moment for which I will not apply for Patent because of the cost.
Another reason is that, in many fields, the practices used by the Companies in dealing with Inventors and Inventions from outside the Company are very discouraging. So, why to bother to invest your mind and money in something that, most likely, will never be used.

I hate to say it but most inventors I know have shut the doors. After more than 30 years in business and more than 30 million products sold I have taken a job. I lost my line of credit, most of my retail customers, and any desire to work with the monopolistic mass market. It’s sad because inventing is the one thing Americans do best but there is no support unless you’re an iPhone app. The corporations have pretty much won and we all lose the innovation that made this country. Hate to sound cynical but that’s MHO.

I think inventional arena is growing every day whether it is in the United States or elsewhere. Just look at the statistics (http://patentsbase.com/) and how much money is made of patents!

free trade ends our democracy, exports our manufacturing infrastructure of engineering design, manufacturing marketing infrastructure with R&D Labs, the primary source of design, without places to work involved in design and discovery of new material, processes, is there any wonder innovation has fallen in the land of the free, under occupation by the world class mafia, resurrecting slavery, where a fair days work for a fair days pay used to reside, in the environment we once had, replaced with goods and services companies, lost to free trade where the trading clan supply us with slave goods, controlling our venues of data, discourage any ideas outside their realm of oligopolies they use to supply the world with fashion controlled by predatory law.

Its a dangerous affair to discover new items of value, in a world where one clan lay claim to all productive resources, including design, innovation, manufacturing, supply, and monetary systems.

Even to say one is an inventor ,is like admitting insanity it seems. I have had several inventions filed away for years and even though some are desperately needed today like the system I have that fights and stops brush fires or forest fires nearly instantly, I just keep to myself until I can regain the trust in someone to help me put it into production together instead of stealing it outright. I tried once to develop an invention for oil well fires and it would have been stolen if the nut could have figured out the invention without having the plans that I kept from him. It’s a tough place for inventors out there and because of the stops like this mentioned and the costs involved ,lots of needed inventions are not revealed.
