    Until America can get around to making more jobs for scientists, the last thing it needs is to make more scientists. Well, second to last thing. Last thing is importing as many scientists as possible from other countries.

    Unless the goal is to depress wages as much as possible, in which case produce as many scientists as possible and import any you can get your hands on.
