US Engineering and Manufacture

Statement in an 1885 British Engineering Journal by a respected peer who had recently traveled to Canada and the US.
Little hard to read but well worth the trouble.

The idea of putting up everything cheaply, not only saps the foundations of permanent success, but depreciate the quality of manufactured articles, and destroys honest dealing.
PBS recent episode of "Retro Report on PBS" demonstrates what happens when business school concepts of management subvert what always made America (and Canada) great.

See how Larry Mulloy and Linda Ham literally murdered people by doing corruption promoted in business schools. They worked for top management rather that work to advance the product - and mankind. They were more interested in cost and unreasonable schedules promoted by management that did not even want to know how the work gets done:

They are not the only ones. But are classic examples that everyone should know and have learned from. Since these concepts were even understood in 1885.

In another thread, Diaphone Jim is really asking about the same thing. It was not an accident. It was intentional corruption at high levels. Because so many no longer care about the product.
