Quote from August Harper’s

Regarding the questionable worth of a college degree….

 

Never has the nation’s system for choosing its leaders seemed more worthless. Our ruling class steers us into disaster after disaster, cheering for ruinous wars, getting bamboozled by Enron and Madoff, missing equity bubbles and real estate bubbles and commodity bubbles. But accountability, it seems is something that applies only to the people at the bottom, the ones who took out the bad mortgages or lied on their resume.
