that only 4 percent of college graduates are out of work. I'll bet, however, that the overwhelming majority of those college graduates will consume 100% of their resources paying off the debt required to obtain that degree in order to get that work. It's becoming a wash. We as a society choose not to invest in the education of our citizenry. Instead we willingly hand over hundreds of billions of dollars to bankers in order to back their trading activities in which they get all of the upside and we get all the risk. We willingly send jobs overseas to exploit lower standards of living so that we can increase our rate of return on financial, not human, capital. We willingly allow products created overseas to exploit lower standards of living to be sold freely in our market (while our market lasts, that is). Additionally, we tear gas, pepper spray and beat our youth who protest against this immoral state of affairs. America, where are you? Please tell me your still there.
