Innovation is characterized by the culture, mentality and attitudes of people in a given society and, politically speaking, changing these “soft” factors is not an easy task. In addition, being open to new developments requires courage. Changes can only come into being if we are prepared to leave old habits and customs behind us. The frequently cited concept of “creative destruction” expresses this very appropriately. The framework that needs to be established through political acumen in order to encourage innovative and creative behavior so that mankind can continue to evolve, or, in other words, an environment that is ready to embrace “creative destruction”.
As an Alpine country without mineral resources, Switzerland relies heavily on innovation. The right political framework encourages people to be innovative.
