Turns out that We need more engineers in politics. And his evidence is compelling.
According to Dr. Elmasry, engineers can save everyone of us, as they (and, one presumes, only them) possess these qualities:
- Engineers are wealth generators
- Engineers understand constrains (sic)
- Engineers understand economics, and its mathematical foundation, more than economists
- Engineers appreciate policies and procedures more than lawyers
- Engineers are part of the world's oldest profession
Impressive stuff. But do professional engineers have what it takes to step into the intellectually demanding field of politics?
"politics mostly attracts people with low IQs, who could not find jobs in professionally competitive careers. And moreover, few honorable people go into politics."
Oh. Alrighty then. Still, his evidence, like his iron ring, is rock solid.
"In the private sector, any industry where engineers still hold the top CEO positions, (but not lawyers and MBAs) the industry flourishes. Look at the success of industries like those related to computer software and hardware, where many of the top executives are engineers, and compare those two industries to the American car industry, where most of the top executives are not engineers."
Absolutely. Look at the success Apple and Microsoft and HP have had with engineers at the helm as opposed to Ford , GM, and Honda.
What is left to say? We need heroes. We need John Galt to be the hero of the universe.
Engineers are Flash Gordon.
