Sir James Dyson thinks the West needs more engineers. I agree with him, though like him, I have a vested interest since I am an engineer. In this article he discusses how people go into finance in the west. That is because they can make a lot of money in finance. At Goldman Sachs the average bonus this year was $700,000. Engineers are relatively well paid, but they do not make anything near that. Goldman Sachs makes money somehow, but it is not by actually producing anything. Dyson talks about the lunar landing program, something that I worked on for many years. It was a challenge, but was also a lot of fun.
