“America’s colleges and universities churn out lots of liberal arts graduates….By and large, the economy doesn’t need all these generals. We’re not training enough scientists and engineers. The high schools used to churn out enough people with technical skills in the fifties and sixties, but not so today. It’s cheaper just to prepare everyone to go to college and pretend that a liberal arts education is going to solve everyone’s problems,” said Professor Peter Morici at the University Of Maryland School Of Business.
