Question and answer
What are some reasons for having a basic understanding of both the English and the Metric system of measurement?
The rest of the world made the free decision to adopt the metric system while the U.S. decided to stay with the English Imperial system. Had the U.S. started to convert early, would there be neither significant costs nor difficulties. [ Now though, that the world is moving on but we chose stagnation, we are facing the consequences. In the 1980s Japanese cars became increasingly popular, simply
because they were the better product, and sale of U.S. cars declined because people just won't buy crap only because it's American. Fortunately the U.S. automotive industry understood, and the result is even better cars. Applying dogmatic traditions and blind vanity to a progressive economy just doesn't work. ]
