A recent story in a local daily newsblog completely illustrates the point I’m about to make. It was detailing the visit of New Mexico Secretary of Education-Designate Hanna Skandera before a large, local political gathering. Nearly a dozen photographs of the event would give a clue many in our community cannot see. Mrs. Skandera was easily the youngest person in the room.
Back in my ancient times at the Carolina business school, we were taught that there were only “three factors of wealth and production:” land, labor and capital. Of course, the modern world has turned all this on its head, but we also learned the wise words of legendary banker Walter Wriston, “capital goes where it’s welcome and stays where it’s well treated.”
Only in today’s techno-centric era, that “capital” is really “human capital.” A critical difference.
Nobody can hope to understand this better than Los Alamos, or at least that’s what you’d think. After all, wasn’t the average age on the Manhattan Project a crusty old 27? To be sure, Los Alamos County would never forget that its creativity and global brand was directly linked to its iconoclastic daring and youthful exuberance?
