See, these people are morons. These guys could probably do things to actually effect the cost of education for people and do some good. That type of grievance has no business on Wall Street. Why aren't they on their college campus protesting the people that made sure that tuition costs have outpaced the rate of inflation by more than a factor of two?

People are quick to villify 'big oil,' simply because it's an easy target. Yet nobody has ever returned a gallon of gas, and you get EXACTLY what you pay for.

But what about 'big education?' Society makes us feel like we MUST send everybody to college, we put all types of subsidies into it, not everyone gets what they are promised from it, and they still hyper inflate the prices. Why won't these fools go start there? When are people going to stand up to 'big education?'

The Protestors know this.... do YOU?


Congress' approval rating with the general public is a bit over 10%. Do you really think that among the protesters, it's 100%????

Any attempt by the left to say that the free market is all bad and the government is all good is naive and counter-productive.

And any attempt by the right to say that we should leave the giant banks alone because that’s the free market are wrong.

The [corrupt, captured government "regulators"] and the giant banks are part of a single malignant, symbiotic relationship.

And as for the "loosers" (Don't blame me! That's how they spell it here!) who have been "taken out of the game"... well that's just too bad, I've got mine so they can fend for themselves. Aw too bad, he could have gone to China and gotten a job as an I-Slave or a coal miner. Nobody wants to work anymore. Crybaby!

Same old song and dance

FBI Considered "It's A Wonderful Life" Communist Propaganda | Wise Bread

COMMUNIST INFILTRATION OF THE MOTION PICTURE INDUSTRY
(RUNNING MEMORANDUM)

There is submitted herewith the running memorandum concerning Communist infiltration of the motion picture industry which has been brought up to date as of May 26, 1947....
With regard to the picture "It's a Wonderful Life", [redacted] stated in substance that the film represented rather obvious attempts to discredit bankers by casting Lionel Barrymore as a "scrooge-type" so that he would be the most hated man in the picture. This, according to these sources, is a common trick used by Communists
addition, [redacted] stated that, in his opinion, this picture deliberately maligned the upper class, attempting to show the people who had money were mean and despicable characters. [redacted] related that if he made this picture portraying the banker, he would have shown this individual to have been following the rules as laid down by the State Bank Examiner in connection with making loans. Further, [redacted] stated that the scene wouldn't have "suffered at all" in portraying the banker as a man who was protecting funds put in his care by private individuals and adhering to the rules governing the loan of that money rather than portraying the part as it was shown. In summary, [redacted] stated that it was not necessary to make the banker such a mean character and "I would never have done it that way."

The old money has been on guard duty for a long time.

Quoting 
When are people going to stand up to 'big education?'


Why didn't anyone stand up to 'big real estate' when house prices were going hyperbolic and the HOMEOWNERS®, banksters, mortgage brokers, Realtors® homebuilders, and related parasites were in perpetual millionaire nirvana mode?

Like "health insurance", the education RACKET is a classic scam where the availability of what looks like free money drives up the costs to levels that are insane, but the stakes are too high for most people to be able to not play the game. Most of the players are being blackmailed into participation for fear of being left behind.

Incentivizing the providers of the free money with government guarantees that insulate them from credit risk ensures that costs will rise far beyond any economically justifiable level. The astronomical costs lead to increasing economic stratification, making life more secure for the scions of the wealthy who face decreasing competition from the Untermenschen. So at least something good comes of it!

Eventually all bubbles burst..... but the markets can remain irrational longer than you can remain solvent.

Yah, what he said! (As I carry my torch closer to my face!)

You are right. You could reach out to any measure of life (education, oil, unions, government, bankers, etc..) it is such a tangled web. I am checking out of this thread because I highly doubt it will open up anyone's eyes and they will change their 'spirit'.

I still like my idea of limiting politicians! That is the only productive suggestion I have seen that I think everyone would agree is GOOD for any social group!

I was surprised that it wasn't 50/50. The high cost of college is just one problem with our educating the workforce problem. The main problem is that global multinationals aren't training Americans at entry level anymore. Even college graduates need entry level or internship programs to get somewhere. Instead the technologies and training are gone to factories, foreign personnel, and offices overseas. And all we have left for citizens here are bull "institutes of tech" farms such as ITT, Full Sail, and DeVry staffed with nauseating salesmen/counselors. Well one could maybe still get into accounting, finance, and sales. But the job sectors of science, tech, and manufacturing have not had a demand for an entry level workforce in some time on U.S. soil.

Almost all white collar jobs can now be offshored via the magic of the Internet. So much for accounting and finance, at least for the back office jobs that account for the big numbers of employees.


charles hugh smith-The "End of Work" and the Coming Revolution in Education


Quoting 
As noted yesterday, what we really have in the U.S. is a corporate-colonial economy ruled by financial oligarchies and their minions in the Central State. Look no further than student loans which cannot be discharged in bankruptcy to dispel any doubts you may entertain about this.

The domestic populace is indentured colonial labor to the Central State, Finance, Corporate America and the Education "industry." Want a "good job" in the government or Corporate America? Then you need that four-year university degree credential, and that of course is gonna cost you.
