What makes for good, satisfying engineering solutions in today's world may have social implications and long-term financial consequences that are far from satisfactory for society as a whole. SACRE is merely a term that will perhaps allow another balance sheet to be included in the cost reduction business plan. The essential elements will be the balance of employed people, the total cost of displaced workers to the local community, and the amount of that total displaced worker cost to be picked up by the cost-reduction plan and paid as additional taxes at the local level. The displaced worker part of the plan could be a stand-alone part of the overall plan. There is nothing to prevent companies getting together to form regional SACRE groups, at little expense. These SACRE groups could help each other with employment strategies in a manner well beyond the event-driven ad hoc meetings held between personnel management and staff. SACRE companies, by focusing attention on their attention to long-term employment strategy, could perhaps gain operating advantages, especially by preferentially dealing with other SACRE companies.<>
