Engineering Our Future: A View of Changes Facing Engineers

In this multi-part series, Gregg Kervill applies scientific methods to the practical realities of our existence. He analyzes America’s place in the world and takes us on a journey through history to find solutions to problems we have faced many time before.  In his quest to identify the problems and solutions facing the US (and countries facing similar economic delinquency), Gregg takes no prisoners and is not averse to killing the odd sacred cow.  He is a firm supporter of Isaac Asimov’s belief that: “Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that ‘my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge’.’”
