    Not sure I agree with him making a political thing out of an unrelated keynote, but I'd say he's spot on in the assessment that nations are only as strong as their education system (at least in some vague terms... more along the lines that poor education will become a limiting factor in time, but it's certainly not the only one)

    I definitely agree about the education. Our development team where i work is made up of 90% Chinese developers and boy do they know their stuff.

    The problem of course is that you don't notice the effects of a poor education system until 20-30 years down the line, way out of any politician's future planning timescale (read: till the next election) and by the time you have realised it's probably too late as you're now living in a country full of morons.

    The most important thing is knowledge. That means money for Teaching and Teachers .. money for R&D (without the "what can it do for my profits in 6 months/1 year" limitations)
