But native ability o listen to authority, delay gratification, and work hard are. None of which are really taught by college.

Dylan Matthews recaps Looney’s most recent study, which finds that, on average, college dropouts makes $8,000 more per year than high-school graduates who never started college”

You have the correlation here exactly backwards. This isn’t a “benefit of college”, it is a benefit of being the type of person who at least tries college vs the type of person who does not.

All of the earning potential is pretty much baked in prior to college, and really prior to high school even.

I can think of nothing more horrid than to be in a restaurant that caters to white trash people (after all, who but them would think of such a thing?) who, now that they have some money, don’t want to sit with the possibly socio-economically less advantaged and, God forbid!, unattractive. Are we still in High School? If I found anyone belonging to this mess working for my company or any of my personal investments, I’d fire them immediately. If you want to know what’s wrong in the country, look no further than this article.
