But There's a Price To Pay
Has civility taken a back seat to outrage and anger? I've never been involved in politics, no do I have an interest in starting now, but it's certainly hard not to notice the heightened emotions reported by the media. Are "news organizations" partly (or largely) responsible, in this age of data-driven commerce. Outrageous headlines get more clicks, which get more ad revenue, a simple, measurable, and compelling formula for explaining what's going on... at least to me. And unfortunately, Shifty experienced it firsthand!
It's Finally Here
I have no problems with business education... I took business classes myself. Personally, I think science is where it's at. Scientific research has accounted for the most profound improvements in the human condition. Science, technology, and mathematics reveal how the natural world works. Engineering helps translate this knowledge into practical, and sometimes life-saving uses. There's no equivalent in the business world, with the possible exception of financial engineering, and we all know how deeply exceptional that's turned out. Creating money out of thin air... yippee ki-yay!
