Not developing new products. Merely improving existing ones.

The Germans make phenomenally good products, but non of them are really radical cutting edge new designs. They tend to be mere improvements on existing products.
Aye. In terms of innovation i think that Calafornia and South Korea are the leaders in many sectors backed by patents, what's forgotten is that this is not just Apple vs Samsung but all the small companies that surround the giants.

The UK does cruelly have quite a good reputation for R&D. But no doubt some posters on here will argue that we're really bad.

UK innovation is very good. We seem to loose out on decent management that seems to be unable to implement that innovation.

The upshot of that is that it can provide near infinite free power mainly fueled by seawater (or any source of water, you just need a good source of hydrogen) and the waste product is helium,
[...]
Thorium is 4x more abundant in the earth's crust than uranium, it can't be used for weapons, removing the need for excessive security on fuel,
The other waste products are the massively activated materials which make up the reactor. This should probably get mentioned.

Also, you can make weapons from Thorium, it's just harder to do so.
