“Finance is very broad discipline. Clearly, the single Mom in your example has impeccable budgeting skills. She could now doubt teach a Walton a thing or two haha!
And, in turn, on page two of our fantasy, the Walton's could probably teach her about more high level finance concepts: compound interest, investing, depreciation, etc.”

“College, by an objective measure, is a huge waste of time and money. I have a bachelor's of science from a decent state school and I can honestly say half of my classes were utterly worthless. And by worthless, I don't mean esoteric or not practical; I mean poorly taught and planned.

Since I've graduated, my alma mater has increased enrollment by 33% and now boasts one of the most opulent rec centers in all the nation. Tuition has also more than doubled in this time period.

There're just running em through.”

Zilo on Dec 5, 2013 at 05:09:07

“And you didn't notice that before? You're the one paying the money.

There are also plenty of schools that are not spending a lot of money on crap that doesn't matter. But they're being feed kids who can't keep up with the courses and they're having to adjust to keep the lights on. There needs to be a top-down change in how we do education, yes, and citizens have to push for it. Unfortunately, many citizens think a lot of education is already worthless in the subjects they don't personally like...”

“Was a guy on KPFA today talking about just that. The billions schools are spending on rec centers, climbing walls, sports arenas (every college team is a money Loser, btw) cafes and other entertainment more fit for a spa than a school.

And the increase in wages for teachers has risen 33% in ten years while for administrators, which they've hired by the truck load, it has risen over 222%!”

“Yes, the money has been going right into the investment firms and banks; and, it's not trickling down into the consumer economy. Hence, the overall lack of demand and the languishing job market. Hence, the lack of inflation.
