We have seen the future, and it sucks.

What the Top 1% of Earners Majored In

30th January 2012

Read it.

According to the Census Bureau’s 2010 American Community Survey, the majors that give you the best chance of reaching the 1 percent are pre-med, economics, biochemistry, zoology and, yes, biology, in that order.

And there you have it.

    What? No feminist theory or ethnic studies? Must be raaaaacism …

    Those surveys are completely wrong. Yes, there are some degrees that will generate higher income upon graduation, but most of the CEOs have BA degrees that wouldn’t qualify a graduate to sell shoes. They may start out low, but when Daddy promotes them to VP for their 25th birthday, they’ll start out earning those biochemists who spent all those long nights studying.

    You sound like you resent the wealthy. Are you a closet ‘progressive’, perhaps? Or have you just come to the bitter realization that ‘pure’ capitalism never has existed, and never will?
