I see that Two Bell Labs N.J. scientists shared the recent '09 Nobel Prize in physics for helping to create the technology behind digital photography and helped link the world through fiber-optic networks. I think that the value of such creative people and the atmosphere they create often exceeds the small salary and lab costs they require. Indded keeping these technologists seems much cheaper and more important than keeping corresponding financial types with 100 million dollar bonuses.
And in this light there was often return for investors too. Companies like At&T that embraced new ideas were likely to have higher stock prices and to appear on ‘most admired’ lists. Both investment analysts and the press seem to believe that companies that adopt new ideas are better companies than those that do not. At least that’s the conclusion in “The Invisible Advantage of Innovation” in which investment analysts Jonathan Low and Pam Cohen Kalafut argue that 35 per cent of investment decision is based on non-financial factors, such as the ability to attract talented people.
