Remember when the end of the government credit induced housing bubble exposed homes as overpriced that turned out to be worth way less and that many people wished they’d never bought?

If you do and if you have a brain, then you can surely make the connection to the government credit induced college education bubble, whose end will expose college degrees as overpriced, making many people realize they should have never spent that kind of money.

    The writing is definitely on the wall with the funding the democrats passed since Obama came to office.

    In such an environment, the families that take responsibility for educating their own children (rather than abdicating to the state education system) will produce children ready to work in the top-paying jobs, and they won’t have the debt that others will.

    We’re already seeing some top positions across the country filled by families who put education first.

    It is a fact that in today’s job market getting your BBA/BS/BA stamp is required for higher earnings. Whether it provides an actual eduction akin to the Trivium is irrelevant.

    Right, just as in 2005’s housing market owning a home was required because bladibladibla …

    And everyone objecting that it’s a bubble got the response: “But dude, this time it’s different! Home princes always go up! Everyone wants a home and there are many practical reasons because …”

    I wonder if people are going to take the same approach to the education bubble … hmmmm … ;)

    Almost every bubble in history has had one hugely important ingredient: A story that makes perfect sense to every idiot on the planet and is intuitive and easy to grasp.
