2. The strengths of the US culture of innovation is that they are always striving for better, more efficient and affordable products. This spirit of innovation has helped US stay the economic and technological giant it is today. On the other hands is that the progress often forgets it creators.

it gave us electricity and the world would be nowhere without it
it provided light, and it was better than candles

The business environment and technological innovation in the modern United States resembles that of the late 1800s and early 1900s in several ways. One of the main reasons why the 1800s saw such innovation was because of the use of coal to power the process of industrialization. Nowadays, coal is not as common, but we are exploring new sources of energy that might allow us to change the country in similar ways. It was also a time of technological innovation that occurred in certain hubs all over the country. Those resemble the technological boom that has been led by companies such as Face.book, A.pple, Goo.gle and A.mazon.
The strengths of the US culture of innovation is that it has given us some of the most important inventions of modern times, along with some of the most important inventors. These discoveries have revolutionized the world. However, some of the weaknesses are the fact that this has often led to significant economic inequality and that this has often required very relaxed laws which give businesses and corporations too much power.
The nineteenth and early twentieth century in America is characteristic of the accelerated development and advancement of industry and technology. Thanks to the industrial revolution, the need for many new workforce has been opened, lifestyles are changing, technological innovations that have a great deal of influence on changes in everyday life are present. It lives faster, more dynamic. All of this is present in America today, and on a much larger scale. The characteristic of the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st century is the development of information technology. Development is enormous with unprecedented possibilities. All this speed in development allows faster flow of information, even greater investments, travel more than ever, people can learn different cultures and enrich themselves. On the other hand, as in the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century, there is a growing division between the rich and the poor. The law of capital conceals power in the hands of a certain number of people. Of course there is a middle class that has more options and choices than ever in terms of self-education, prosperity, travel, contacts with anyone in the world are far easier on the Internet than through telegraphs in the 19th century. All this represents the strengths of the US today. Weaknesses today, as well as through history, would be racism, racial conflicts, the poverty of a large number of people who do not even have conditions for social protection, can not go to doctors when they are ill.
Thomas Edison's lightbulb was important because there was no light bulb before he made it.
Now in our modern world we use the lightbulb everyday.
Well during the early 1900´s the United States were undergoing The Great Depression which was a hard time for america but with the technological innovations and the business environment starting to flourish it more than likely helped America come out of that time period and become one of the most productive countries that we are today. The strengths of the innovations today are that thery´re really changing and shaping the future of tomorrow and the future of the young people coming up, but the weakness would be that we become in debt with other countries because of the demand for these innovations
The strengths of an innovation culture are the capacity for change and growth and new solutions to problems. The weaknesses are felt in terms of turmoil and uncertainty. People today may go through several types of careers rather than remaining in one stable company or career path for their whole life. Competition pushes everyone to keep innovating or risk becoming obsolete.
