Dear Research Advocate:

The Bureau of Economic Analysis has reclassified research and development costs from an “expense” to an “investment” when calculating GDP. We think Members of Congress should do the same. Common sense tells us R&D is an investment, not an expense; in general conversation we all talk about R&D as an investment, but it isn’€™t accounted for that way on the federal books. The arguments we’€™ve been making are now further bolstered by the BEA’€™s decision. Spread the word!

Join Research!America’€™s social media congressional recess campaign, Medical Research is at Risk. We Need Cures, Not Cuts!
