Supply and demand

It’s incredible that so few people understand why most college degrees are worthless nowadays:

My daughter said to me the other day, “Why bother going to college Mom? You have a great degree, from a great college and it means nothing. I think I might move out of the country.”

When a) a college degree is no guarantee that the possessor has even a rudimentary education and b) half the population has one, it’s downright stupid to waste time and resources acquiring one, especially if you’re pursuing a degree that isn’t in a technical field for which there is proven demand.
