Parents Buy Kid a Hobby Degree

HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE:

Why I Let My Daughter Get a ‘Useless’ College Degree: A new study from the Federal Reserve offers more evidence that my humanities-loving child will graduate with lots of debt and not so many job offers. And I’m OK with that.

Yeah, well, your kid isn’t graduating with lots of debt. You are, since you admit later that you and your hubby are picking up the tab.

Most kids aren’t lucky enough to have parents who will let them squander high-five-figure sums picking up a degree that will qualify them to “write for a food blog.”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. A large part of the reason I’ve been so broke lately is I’m helping my sons with college costs. As I’ve told them several times, the only reason I’m helping is because they’re both in engineering school. If they were pursuing degrees in international relations, well, you’re on you’re own, kids.
