I say that because no one with a real education gets promoted to a position of authority, only heavy drinking frat boys. Sycophantcy is the path of success. You don’t really need to study for that. I mean even look at what get’s reported here at Reuter’s. It’s a bunch of junk designed not offend the masters of industry. You guys bash electric cars (proof of sycophantcy), you talk like americans have freedom (proof of sycophantcy), you pretend like there is a difference between the two political parties (proof of sycophantcy) and on and on. On every topic which I know the specific detailed truth through personal experience you give the story a spin that is approved by the puppeteers of our leaders.

People with lots of savings go to the Opera 5 times a year because they choose to, whereas lots of people with no savings go to college hundreds of days a year because they feel they have to get a diploma to get a job. Once the MOOCs can tee up dozens of graduates to corporations, and once these graduates show themselves to be the equal of the sociology majors from the $60,000/year University of the Pacific, no one will pay $60,000 for UOP. Employers will still want people who got into Harvard, and people will still want to go to Harvard for the same reasons they’ll want to join the tony country club, but no one will be under any illusions. For about 70% of its consumers, Higher Ed is a bad joke in which students are taught to pose and mimic (and drink beer and get laid.)

I call it the flower vender supply curve. Flower shops may think that flower street venders steal business by undercutting them, but they probably increase business for the shops over time.
A guy who would never spend 30$ on flowers might spend 5-10$ for a small bouquet. As he gets in the habit, he might feel the desire to splurge on Valentin’s day, birthdays, anniversaries, etecetera.

And one other point re crendentialing versus interest, is true expertize. There may not be a lot of people who are truly facinated by accounting, but undoubtedly, a good number who are, are unable to get credentialing due to current costs.

That’s the difference between TV for profit and TV designed to “Inform, educate, entertain”.
