GradSchoolGrad Posted November 30, 2020 Share Posted November 30, 2020 Lately, I have been hearing about this argument that our hyper-partisan + divisive society is attributed to how we have too many people with graduate degrees given the marketplace demand. Article in the economist is here: https://www.economist.com/finance-and-economics/2020/10/24/can-too-many-brainy-people-be-a-dangerous-thing Just curious about what people think about this? Anecdotally, I have noticed an expectations frustration gap. This is whereby people get admitted to a graduate program and think the brand of the degree + school should carry them through, but then get really frustrated when they realize the potential outcomes mismatch their expectations. As someone with two graduate degrees (and having contemplated a 3rd), I realize this is ironic for the question coming from me. However, I'm all about listening to all perspectives, even if is critical of my own choices. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
