Hi Templar

The newscasters keep telling us we need more engineers !!! ;)

The big picture is the name of the game. I forgot..................really.

Ever read Thorstein Veblen?

He argued that engineers ought to be running things instead of businessmen.

I first read Veblen back in college, but the older I get and the more I see of things, the more I begin to suspect he was right.

Give the engineers the money you pay the CEOs and the bankers and the financial analysts, you might see something.

I haven't read Veblen but I can go with that.
