The cost of education

January 21st, 2010 at 05:14 am

I borrowed a book from the library last month called The Armchair Economist by Steven Landsburg. I was so diligently perusing it trying to educate myself I forget to return it on time and it cost me 30 cents. Still beats signing up for a semester study on the subject.

I have decided the problem with economists, financial policy advisors and others of that ilk is they are all doing better than average so support whatever system enables them to do well. If economists earned minimum wage I bet we'd see some very different economic theories.

    Man, I was all ready to join in a rant about college costs. Oh well!

    And you're certainly right about politicians. They do quite well under the current system, so what's their motivation?

    and they can be wrong all the time and people still listen to them!
