From the New York Times, today, in Paul Krugman’s editorial titled “Oligarchy, American Style”:
So, basically, paying a lot of money for a university education will probably allow you have, at best, crippling debt, a low-paying job with extremely limited wage increases, and terrible health care. That is one of the BEST CASE scenarios, and it is based on actual quantifiable facts.
On the other end of the spectrum, Michael Bloomberg, also in the New York Times:
Ha ha, yeah dummies! Why don’t you just create your own jobs! That’s what everyone else had to do and you definitely have all of the money and resources to do that. So get going, you lazy crumbums!
One of these guys gets it. The other one seems to be willfully missing the point. How embarrassing for him! But when he later realizes his faux pas, he can dry his tears with money, so.
