Elusium saidHigher education is just the latest burst bubble.I mainly hear this type of rant from people that have obscure/niche degrees in the arts. I think today's college students need to understand that it's totally ok to pursue their passion. BUT always have a back-up plan. So it might be a good idea to minor in Business, just in case.
Just as people are underwater with over-valued homes, now young people are over-burdened with degrees that aren't even worth the paper they're printed on.
It's not a rant -- it's a new economic reality America isn't prepared to face. Yes, in in the post-2nd Great Depression U.S., everybody is supposed to be a businessman or Wall Street Trader now.
If you got in on the Clinton-era prosperity, it's easy to dole out supply-side anodyne like this.
If you didn't, a statement like this basically the equivalent of "Everything happens for a reason,"
which by the time you get to Plan X, Y, or Z, starts to sound a lot like "Anything can happen with a razor."
