The only way I believe there is a shortage of engineers in a free market economy is if its price rises. Someone show me some data that demonstrates this? Or is the price of an engineer supply/demand insensitive? Conversely if you increase supply then the price falls, for a given demand. Gee, that could be useful for all those employers bleating about engineer shortages.

There is no real shortage of engineers in the US. This claim is killing our future by driving away students and driving ba policy. See my March article in IEEE Today's Engineer.

I agree. I used to tell my people that the only real function of management was to remove the obstacles that prevent engineers from getting the job done. If they could not do that, then they served no purpose. Just my opinion.

Blah, blah, blah. No "knowledge management" system is going to make up for poor management, which is what really kills engineering productivity.

We would have plenty of engineers if we gave them just a small fraction of the addulation that sports figures get. Talk about a backward society where physical freaks get more money and press time than the people who really make the world work and advance with technology. Just my opinion,
