The REAL problem is that the government has taken over the student loan business.

"So, you want to borrow $200,000 to get a degree in Mid-20th Century Pissed-off Feminist Literature? No problem! Just sign here...and here..."

The fact is, no banker in his right mind would approve that loan, and for good reason. You can still get a good education in America, but it`s buyer (actually, borrower) beware. Otherwise, you will spend the next 20 years paying for a worthless piece of paper.

People think of schooling as something it is not. It`s not a guarantee of wealth or even work. The best thing you can get from it is how to think, investigate, converse, etc. about a specific subject.

The desire/will to work is entirely unrelated to school. If you have that, you will always have work. If you don`t have that, you will always struggle. There is one simple rule for this: Always give your employer more usefulness than the dollars you are getting. If he can spend less to get the usefulness you provide elsewhere, then you`re not worth it to them. Sadly, most people think they`re entitled to work and should get paid for sitting on their asses and doing little or nothing.

Pretty much true. Make no mistake, higher education is a bubble. Incomes are falling, tuition is rising, there has to be a rip soon. And it`s coming sooner rather than later.


Even with my Master`s from Columbia, not everyone with my degree was able to get a job.
