The college rip-off

The United States may have a college education bubble that could soon start to burst, possibly as soon as mid-2011. While college may be worth attending if you plan on actually learning something, going to college simply to get a better job is becoming a poor choice, if it ever was a good one — work experience will likely benefit you more than a degree.

The cost of college is the only thing in the U.S. that never declined in price during the panic of 2008; in fact, it rose in price substantially. Tuition is way up, but the employment situation in the U.S. has deteriorated. All across the U.S., students are graduating in debt with no jobs waiting for them.

Government is preserving this rip off by requiring licenses for things that should not require a license like hair braiding or even massage and exercise classes.
