Trading Justice

podcast   Education is no doubt important. You can't do something until you know how to do it. However, the credentialization of the workplace and overly long degree tracks (including excessive general ed requirements) isn't necessarily the best system. Other countries carry more focused programs such as three year MBA track programs from start of college to finish. Such a curriculum allows students to get the most efficient use of their college time while also getting the exact skillset they want for whatever profession they wish to enter. Curriculum isn't the only problem currently facing secondary education. Spiraling costs of both public and private schools almost mandate a student take loans to even attend whereas said loans are part and parcel part of the inflationary cost. More money available in the system allows colleges to increase the cost, students take more loans to attend, the schools increase costs again, ad nausium. In this episode, Tim and Solon Stephanou talk about the current state of education in the US and abroad, the importance of an entrepreneurial spirit in succeeding, and the current presidential race. applogoapple logo_0034_stitcher tunein-logo
