Spurred by Obama’s “Sputnik moment” (referring to economic competition with China), gov-sponsored Smithsonian Institute launched a new blog “Department of Innovation.”

The three interlocking gears on logo can’t move in any direction – good analogy of American government’s current situation.

And in the last session of “White House White Board,” where Obama cronies/academics lecture America’s movers-n-shakers on how government can run along its brightest, Austan Goolsbee, a Chicago academic with 0 experience in business heading Obama’s ERAB, played his usual comedy by preaching about economic importance of startups/entrepreneurs.

While at Yale, Goolsbee was in improv comedy troupes.
