Having technology-literate leaders is a major strategic advantage for nations in the 21st century.

At this point you could say that the long-term success of a nation is determined by its ability to produce technological literacy (or capture technological literacy produced somewhere else)

The thing is, technology is power, but technology isn't a thing that exists as an external resource, like a stack of coal and iron ore. It mostly exists in people and culture. Its concrete artifacts are short-lived and expandable.

A tech company without its engineers and processes is just a pile of exponentially depreciating software and servers, that will be worth zero within months. It's all in the people and culture
