Ha, I've seen corporate efficiency. Spend every dollar so our budget doesn't get cut. Pad those expenses so we can get more money next year. New furniture with no employees to sit at it because we cut headcounts. Strategic decisions that force anyone who isn't brain dead to polish off their resume and change jobs, leaving only the cream of the crop (of dumbasses).

Well, you appear to have calmed down. Your response merited worse then simpleton.
Plenty of degree holding people stopped thinking years ago. I also have a degree.
The only one ignoring economics is you. You can't cheap your way out of stupidity, but educated people can work wonders.

Yeah, you.
A glut of degrees is not responsible for company's demanding degrees. The general refusal of companies to invest in R&D or training, in lieu of stock buybacks or executive compensation is the driving factor there.. The high cost of education also has more to do with state's clawing back education dollars then anything students or universities are doing.

Your parents and grandparents, maybe you, received many more public dollars towards their education then today's students. There was a time when anyone with the desire to get a degree could count on federal loans and part time work to fulfill their dream. Barring excessive outside obligations, anyone had the opportunity. That time has passed. Now it's either crippling debt or family wealth that allows you to get an education. I

want to go back to a time where anyone who wanted to learn, had the opportunity. I want to live in a community full of educated people, not simpletons like yourself.

My comment is directed at the people complaining about others degrees devaluing theirs. That is only true in the smallest microcosm. Bringing others up, always helps you reach higher, but some people are happy to wallow in the mud as long as it's slightly better mud then someone else's.
