And The Leaders In Innovation Are...

The people who measure innovation in the Global Innovation Index (GII) say that Europe leads the world in innovation. Sub-Saharan Africa is not doing too badly either.

The GII is an annual ranking of countries according to their potential for research and development.

Joe Weisenthal of the Business Insider joins Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss the new GII rankings.
