What exactly did Control Data founder and chairman emeritus mean when he said that one of the aims of the planned William Norris Institute would be to track transfers of technology from the US to Japan (CI No 859)? He has been explaining in an article written for the Los Angeles Times: Norris reckons that in recent years, transfers of electronic technology have been five to one in favour of Japan, while in machine tools it has been seven to one, and that while there are now some 7,000 Japanese graduate students and postdoctural fellows doing science and engineering at US universities, only just over 1,000 Americans are doing similar studies in Japan – and he reckons these imbalances are at the root of the huge US trade deficit with Japan.
