“Washington Consensus” Industry and Academic and Gov’t (?) View: U.S. Suffers from Shortage of Engineers

… both national security and economic status in a global economy has relied primarily on technological superiority.

Not enough U.S. students are choosing majors in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology to maintain this status quo, much less sustain global leadership.
