Yes, notice the incredible advantage that the USA has in automotive
manufacturing compared with Germany.
And of course, machine tools.
Dear Greg Locock:
I don't know that it was evident you were kidding.
It found it particularly interesting that a German company would buy
the company that would "fire the engineers and start production".

Leaving out my second example rather destroys that argument.
Anyway, when would you date the decline of the American automotive
industry wrt the German one? I'd say that some time in the sixties the
German's started to set their own agenda, and by the nineties there was
no question that German (and Japanese) manufacturers were far more
capable of satisfying American customers requirements, and innovating,
than the Big 3. And since then ... So is 40 years a 'particular time'?
No I'm an engineer. Do you live under a bridge?
You're still being disingenuous.
The guy asked about research in general.
He did not ask about one field of research.
I gave my opinion of the general state of engineering and research.
You tried to retort with one specific industry.
One industry does not satisfy a general case.
I could have mentioned aerospace or microelectronics or
any of a host of other fields in which the USA are undisputed world leaders.
But I chose to keep my answer general for a general question.
If you are proposing that automobile manufacturing satisfies the case
for the general state of engineering in the US?
If so, I have a bridge to sell you and it's not in Minneapolis.
