Glad you wrote about it, Ken. In my opinion Professors (at educational stage) and Managers (at professional stage) have to exaplain in fact and through their professional lifes as pragmatic example, attitude you mentioned inside your article. I really believe a part of "personal constraint" in which people seem to live, will be absolutely resolved and overtaken. I spent a big part of my professional life as industry executive and I met quite often with attitude as "ipse dixit" like Aristotele age from top managers. Nowadays it is not that time. Facts and numbers are needed to sustain or not decisions. Isn't it?
