Would you say that economic growth is driven by scientific research and technological growth?

If science and technology are the driving forces of growth. The result is that the best economic policies encourage science and technology. So is that the argument we should have when we discuss Capitalism and Socialism, especially since socialists are more likely to supports universal tertiary education?

    I agree with the above, in the sense that growth is forwarded by Research, however, I don’t think that socialism is more effective that capitalism. Either way, could you please explain?
