I must strongly dispute your statement that "Smart, educated people will always be in short supply." I think that this is utterly wrong. There are thousands if not tens of thousands of US citizens with engineering degrees who are unemployed or underemployed due to industry consolidations or management incompetence. The massive shrinkage of the US defense industry in the aftermath of the Cold War put thousands of very capable engineers on the street. Some of these people applied their talents to other sectors and came up with creative, excellent products in areas from children's toys to bicycles. There is no shortage of engineering or science talent in the US, period.
