Indeed. I remember reading that Mr. Benz (or Mr. Mercedes?), one of the
earliest manufacturers of cars, concluded that the maximum market for
automobiles throughout the world would be one million. It would not be
possible to train more engineers than that.

Of course, those of us who are not engineers can thank someone for making
cars easy for us to drive/maintain.
