    Mexico has great engineers because we’ve migrated enough manufacturing down there to give them great experience. The U.S. engineering shortages are the result of our acceptance of a service economy. Manufacturing creates transformational jobs. At a production worker level that is a path to a living wage for production operators willing to train and acquire more skills over time. At an engineering level that translates to better (able to deliver higher value results) engineers. The real test with Tesla is will they pay Mexican engineers as well as they pay U.S. engineers or will they give them a slight bump in pay that keeps them discounted compared to US engineering salaries.

    Martin, no doubt Mexico has a lot well qualified professionals. But like the Italians there will always be an image problem.

    Mexico has the most creative architects in the El Paso region, IMHO. As for the “tequila-drinking-sombrero-wearing-siesta-taking gringo”, that’s me these days 🙂

    Why wouldn’t Mexico have great engineers? It’s in the Mexican DNA – builders of great pyramids, Tenochtitlan (now that’s some engineering), and they gave us the number 0 (zero). These are a few things that come to my mind at the moment.

    When I was reading on the history of zero I asked some of my engineering friends if they would be able to do their engineering calculations without zero. I thought that was an interesting query.
