    We are talking about undergraduates and the career choices they make.  

    The kids going to Harvard and Princeton are among the brightest, most talented, and most driven that our nation has to offer.  Each has the potential to become a leader at the national level.  

    At present about half to go into finance and consulting, which means that they are not going into science or medicine or the arts or the law or any of the other professions that are essential to the functioning of a modern industrial society.

    As you observe, the researchers at Harvard Medical School are doing some good work.  Think of what they could accomplish if they had twice as many top scientists on the job.

    •  No, "We" are discussing technology (0+ / 0-)

      And the use of it, including my universities and students.

      "You" are trying to impose a limit on the discussion bandwidth to conform to the limited scope and content of your comment.

      Are you willfully missing my points, perhaps?
