The metric system is the main means of measurement around the world except for Burma, Liberia, and the US. This fact makes the US to be perceived as out of touch.

Different people rely on the metric system form a variety of fields in a ever expanding world. As the world expands so does the requirement to know the metric system.

The United States is Interconnected with the world, and therefore the US should convert to the metric system to work effectively with other countries. The US also benefits from this relationship because it would make transitions between countries easier.
