#40: Disneyland Is a Huge Plus
Americans are incredibly innovative, for sure, but we still come in third concerning inventions. Switzerland and Sweden are marginally ahead of us, according to the 2020 World Intellectual Property Organization report. We are first in both Entertainment and Media, which is nice.
Switzerland lands first in Knowledge Creation, China in Patents Registered, and India in Information and Communication. Still, with places like Disneyland and inventions like the iPhone, it’s hard to say we aren’t great. It certainly feels like our country is stepping up on giving smiles to people throughout the world.
