Deep Thought of the Day

Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman asks an important question, pertinent to all students and recent college graduates across the country:

Meanwhile, how much has our nationís future been damaged by the magnetic pull of quick personal wealth, which for years has drawn many of our best and brightest young people into investment banking, at the expense of science, public service and just about everything else?

For the last several years, over twenty percent of Cornell graduates have entered the financial services industry, including undoubtedly some students trained in mechanical or chemical engineering, labor relations, or consumer regulation. All things which we might need more of in the coming years.

Food for thought.

Bonus Deep Thought: Why haven't you entered MetaEzra's Holiday Haiku contest yet?
