    That seems to be the norm of your generation, not mine.

    One cannot even get into the field of engineering today without having a graduate degree.

    So when your top down analysis using top level measurements gives you the answer, then you are confident that the answer is correct. However, if many of your low level samples don't show the same causality and and have a high level alignment you should question the high level analysis.

    You think all those corporate lawyers who pen contracts are redistributing wealth instead of creating it? Try inter-corporate relations without contracts and see where that gets you.

    You think holding companies financially responsible for defective and harmful products doesn't contribute to the economy by giving companies an incentive to produce better and safer products?!?

    And when are the interests of one not dependent on the interests of the other? Society has less problems when the economy is growing and running smoothly. The economy has less problems when society is functional and stable. In the modern age where society revolves around human created goods and services, the two are quite inseparable.
    I have seen stupid employers try to keep pay too low, and equal among non-union workers....their best workers left as soon as they could find better pay elsewhere...

    That's certainly not a bad idea (ie the college degree), but it's not necesarry

    I know a few people who didn't attend college, but are paid as engineers...self taught, genius, types....the kind who COULD go out on their own but choose not to....and we all know people with graduate degrees who somehow lack the common sense/good judgement to do things right...
