America loves innovation and the can-do spirit that made this country what it is… but statistics show today we invent less than half of what our counterparts did a century and a half ago. After five, join Gene Purcell and his guest as they discuss why America has all but stopped inventing, and how the U.S. Patent System fits in. After 5:50, Gene talks with the local inventor of Brickstix, removable stickers for Legos and other bricks toys.
