Stossel: The College Scam

Government pushing college harms America.

Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines.
---------

A new book makes the case against education. Who would argue against education?

Economics professor Bryan Caplan. He tells John Stossel that what we need to do is to go back to a world where college is not so accessible.

That's because most people don't learn much in college. Studies find that a third of people haven't learned anything detectable after four years in college.

Yet government pours about $80 billion a year into college subsidies.

Taxpayers ought to know that they're getting ripped off, Caplan tells Stossel.

He says taxpayer money mostly helps more people signal their ability to conform to college expectations.

When people get fancier degrees, says Caplan, their income generally goes up...but the reason...is not really that college is pouring tons of job skills into you. The reason is that it's impressive.

Lots of signaling, he points out, is bad for society.

Imagine that you were at a concert, everyone's sitting down and you want to see better, Caplan says. What can you do? Well, you can stand up, and of course then you'll see better. Now, it does not follow though that if everyone stands up, everyone sees better.

As more people get degrees, more employers demand that signal.

Employers now require degrees for jobs where it used to be crazy to think they would need a college degree, like being a high-end waiter, says Caplan.

Stossel pushes back: Surely college is also about learning.

Caplan responds that if students wanted to learn they can just walk on to a campus and attend class. Caplan says professors are happy to let the student attend. But few students do that.

In people's bones they realize that what really counts is that diploma, Caplan argues.

Caplan does think college is great for a few people like him—tenured professors. He can never be fired, gets paid well, and only has to teach classes for five hours a week.

That's a scam, Stossel responds, we're paying so much money for people like you to teach five hours.

Yeah. Well, I'm a whistleblower, Caplan quips.

Caplan says we should stop subsidizing the scam: The wisest solution...would be if government just got out.

Stossel agrees: Separate school and state.

How U.S. Student Loans Became A $1.6 Trillion Crisis

College is more expensive—and important—than ever before. Some 44 million Americans collectively hold nearly $1.6 trillion in student debt. And these numbers are growing. This decade alone, college costs increased by 25% and student debt increased by 107%. Today, college graduates earn 80% more than those with just a high school diploma. That dichotomy is putting students in a difficult situation: Do they risk going into crippling debt at the beginning of their adult lives in the hope the investment turns into a career financial stability that goes with it?

Some 44 million Americans collectively hold over $1.6 trillion in student debt. And these numbers are growing.

At the same time, advancements in technology, especially automation, are making it harder to earn a living wage without some type of advanced degree. Today, college graduates earn 80% more than those with just a high school diploma, on average.

College is more expensive — and important — than ever before. And that dichotomy puts students in a difficult situation: do they risk going into debt they can’t pay back or miss out on the benefits of a college degree?

Experts have long labeled this dynamic a “crisis.” But then, another kind of crisis hit: the coronavirus pandemic. And then, an economic crisis followed.

In February, the United States officially entered an economic recession and between mid-march and June, over 42.6 million Americans filed for unemployment.

During the 2008 recession, many opted to go back to school and gain new skills. However, since then, the cost of a four-year college degree increased by 25% and student debt increased by 107% and many are less sure if college will be the solution to riding out a recession this time around.

CNBC Make It spoke with students, borrowers, historians and experts to learn how student debt became a crisis, how the pandemic will impact borrowers and who is to blame for putting students in an impossible position.

Useless College Degrees to Avoid in 2020 (Top 8)

The BEST Degrees in 2020:


How I Got Paid $18K To Go To College:


Credit 101:

Today we are looking at the most useless college degrees. Now, I AM talking from experience, I have two degrees and you could argue that one is completely useless and the other I was very glad to get.

Today I wanted to save you guys from wasting your time pursuing useless degrees like the one I got and help you instead focus on the ones that might actually make you money, like the other one.

I feel like I need to make something very clear though before we get too deep into this video and that is if you are trying to “follow your passion” there is very little justification for doing that through a degree.

If you want to some of these things you are passionate about there are far more efficient and cheaper ways of doing this that do not involve paying hundreds of thousands of dollars per year and tying up 4 years plus of your life.

Lets start this list off with one of the better useless degrees which is is Mathematics. This degree can still be useful but unfortunately it will require a second degree in another field to be considered truly “valuable”. By itself it does not hold much value.

In 7th place is a business degree.
Now this one is not COMPLETELY useless but it is definitely bad enough to make it onto this list. Business is everywhere and getting a degree in business is like getting a degree in learning.

Next is a degree is psychology/sociology, and this one is hard to put on this list at all because it is SO INTERESTING. But unfortunately the money isn’t there and all this stuff can be learned on Youtube.

Another one that pains me to put on this list is any foreign language.

A degree that just HAS to be worse than this though is communications. While going to college to learn a language may be inefficient, going to college to learn the language you are already speaking is a huge waste of time.

Now in 3rd place we have History. In school my experience with history was memorizing dates and events.

The subject of History has turned into a script used for entertainment. And unless you study history to create content like what is shown LITERALLY on the HISTORY channel or some popular youtube channels or podcasts there isn’t much value for learning this content to the extent a degree will offer.

Definitely worse than history is the 2nd worst degree which is anything to do with art.

There is very little job application for this degree. Most of the content can be best learned through a book. None of the content you learn will every make you money.

Lastly, the number one WORST degree you could get HAS to be gender studies.

Basically the more and more I dug into it I found that it more and more resembled a pyramid scheme. Where people who made the mistake and got into it with a bachelor’s degree dig themselves further into a masters degree so they can teach others about gender studies.

This degree is not only the worst because it is not able to get you a job or income but it makes this special spot on the list because of how aggressively people with this degree or in the degree program will try to recruit you.

Stay very far away from this one at all costs.


At the end of the day, this list may change over time, some degrees may become more useful some may become even worse but a great guideline to follow when making a decision on a degree NOT on this list is:

If you need a degree to do it, it may be worth the time and money.

$118k In Debt For A Useless Drama Degree!?

This is a video response to 118k in debt for a useless drama degree as well as the original video by buzzfeed which went over Britney's story:

Britney got a Drama degree and found herself $118k in debt with no end in sight. It's a really nasty situation. I feel bad for her and here are my thoughts.

The other video by Don't Walk, Run! Productions sort of roasted Britney and I think it was all in good fun(I like their video), but I'd like to provide a slightly more serious perspective on the situation because there are a lot of young people that get caught in this trap.

100k in debt for a useless english degree

Hey guys! I feel like I'm finally giving myself the chance I deserve! I hope you guys enjoy. And if you don't enjoy me talking about my debt then this is not the place for you! I am going to keep talking about it so I can let it be known how much of a problem student loans really are for anyone coming out of college. I no longer choose to be a victim to my circumstances but I will never stop speaking out about this subject because IT'S ONLY GETTING WORSE NOT BETTER. Kids are going to keep going to college, I just want to make it known what you are signing up for when you go to a fancy school. Please make sure you are ready for this burden when it comes. Please make SMARTER financial decisions than I did. Do not put yourself through the same mistakes. Student loans are not worth it and they never will be. They tell you to go to college and get a good job but when you go to college and can't find a good job they blame you for your decisions and shame you for your debt. It not just college anymore, it's a life of indentured servitude. The borrower is a slave to the leader. BE EDUCATED, MAKE SMARTER CHOICES, PLEASE LEARN FROM WHAT I AM SAYING. This is MY TRUTH and I'm not afraid to share it.

Before you ask me why I have an english degree please watch this video of a guy who had a mechanical engineering degree and was still unable to get a job, THE TYPE OF DEGREE IS NOT WHAT MATTERS:
