    Topic: The Case Against Education

    Education is over-rated. While it sharply increases 
    the incomes of the well-educated, the reason is 
    largely “signaling.” But the problem is largely the 
    government’s fault: Without almost a trillion dollars
     of government subsidies per year, we’d waste far
     less time and money mastering irrelevant subjects
     – and young people would begin independent, productive lives 
    years earlier.
