There is nothing you could do to reform education that would have the slightest impact on innovation.

Not sure how you define innovation, but it's hard to believe anyone could discover this without an education:

Genetically Modified 'Serial Killer' T-Cells Obliterate Tumors in Leukemia Patients

The protocol, which involves removing patients' cells and modifying them in Penn's vaccine production facility, then infusing the new cells back into the patient's body following chemotherapy, provides a tumor-attack roadmap for the treatment of other cancers including those of the lung and ovaries and myeloma and melanoma.

ScienceDaily (Aug. 11, 2011) — In a cancer treatment breakthrough 20 years in the making, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania's Abramson Cancer Center and Perelman School of Medicine have shown sustained remissions of up to a year among a small group of advanced chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) patients treated with genetically engineered versions of their own T cells. The protocol, which involves removing patients' cells and modifying them in Penn's vaccine production facility, then infusing the new cells back into the patient's body following chemotherapy, provides a tumor-attack roadmap for the treatment of other cancers including those of the lung and ovaries and myeloma and melanoma.

I agree with most of your post--a good synopsis--except for the following points:

<<Unfair labor practice argument is also not valid because the people in those poor countries are better off than before to have that jobs at low wages rather than not have any at all. Marginal value of having a low paying job is very high in such places. But once the economic condition improves companies will have to pay higher wages. In my opinion, middle class will rise in most countries due to globalization.>>

While it is true SOME are better off having low wage jobs, than they were before, some are not.

Only Switzerland outspends the US on education, so it's not the funding, it's the method.
