    Who’s going to pay the tuition?

    Most STEM graduates could not find STEM work (but at least most of them got jobs doing SOMETHING).


    Piketty did a bunch of time series analyses that showed r > g (whatever that means). The fact that the average Briton was far wealthier in Dickens’ time than Chaucer’s while the median Briton was worse off just means that your mother (and driving instructor) were right: Stay off the median.


    The disruptions caused by WWII, combined with the fear Stalin induced in the gentry when he ordered every bourgeoisie and petit bourgeoisie killed, caused the median income to rise faster than the average income for one short, exceptional period, an abnormality that caused the greatest, most painful problem ever to face the world: the Servant Problem.


    Now that the world has returned to normalcy, following Piketty’s r > g, we hope to see a prompt return to a service economy, where the rabble will have to take jobs in service to their betters in exchange for a bunk in the basement and scraps from the table, with their only alternative being starving in the gutter. At least then our betters will have the requisite staff for their mansions, the butler, housekeeper, maids, valets, footmen, gardeners, etc., etc. That topiary isn’t going to trim itself!

    Except the luxury goods makers will probably hire someone in China, not the US.

    They have to hire SOMEONE in the US to act as importers and retailers. What more could you ask of them?

    There is no permanent solution to poverty. There always has been and always will be rich and poor people under all types of governments, economic systems, etc. Some countries (like Canada and Singapore) are just better at hiding poverty from plain sight.

    Yep, and here we are back where we started. Ten years go by and the same guy is back on the same corner still begging for cash. Only this time the guy has a PHD and a one million dollar student load debt! Can you help him out? Please??

    I just love the idea of government “giving” money. What could be better?

    Right on target, except for one thing; there are a lot of Democrats who are just as zealous in serving their rich masters. Alas, I don’t know how you could illustrate that in just a few letters or an image.

    Sadly, the rich guy will buy a robot and a google car and cut out the “workers”.

    Ah, SEE? You DO need the Democrats, and the Dems need the Repubs. Who ELSE would you be able to accuse for the same things as your party’s blunders?

    Mitt Romney said we should borrow money from his parents.
