This crisis means the end of bullsh*t college and university degrees?

  1. Except for the super-rich in super-expensive universities, who are assured to get a big inheritance,

    Bullsh*t careers are gone, as most can't even earn what they spend on getting the degree?

    Goodbye art degrees, historians, philosophers, economists, even bye nutritionists and psychologists?

    Altough it makes some sense to get some degrees by mail, if you can get them cheap, spending no time.
    They will boost any resume.
  2. Is is wrong to point out that a guy named Garcia is posting a link to a site called holytaco?

  3. Does the taco shell appear to have an image of the Virgin Mary cooked on it? :confused: :D :eek:

    You cited a humor website in an economics forum to prove that economics (among others) is a worthless degree?

    How does Bill Engvall say it? Here's your sign?
  5. 80% of this year's grads are "boomerangs" who go back to live with mom and dad.

    College has a terrible cost in wasted time and resources - in terms of preparation for the world of work.

    Most importantly - think of the super-expensive colleges mentioned earlier. They may or may not prepare a student for work. If they take 5% of applicants, they are going to get talented people who could be a success anywhere. So it's even unclear what the super-expensive schools really add.

    liberal arts degrees in the right hands are valuable.

    Just not in a jobless recovery - private sector high paying jobs massive recession/depression.

    The over paid finance and service sector recession may be permanent.
  8. No it only means we will expand both regulation and direct government employment so that more fake-work jobs can be created to employ these fake college graduates.

    College made sense when it was only for the elite. "Mass" university attendance is a giant fraud.
  9. It's interesting that so many people think that the criterion by which to judge the value of a college education is whether it will get you a job. That is a very narrow view of education.
