Degrees and Dollars
So if we want a society of broadly shared prosperity, education isn’t the answer — we’ll have to go about building that society directly.
It’s no longer true that having a college degree guarantees that you’ll get a good job, and it’s becoming less true with each passing decade.
What we can’t do is get where we need to go just by giving workers college degrees, which may be no more than tickets to jobs that don’t exist or don’t pay middle-class wages.
Amazingly controversial argument.
