“There is strong data, going back for decades, to confirm a four-year college degree increases one’s earning potential over a lifetime. But there is equally compelling data that shows a disturbing trend among young college graduates who are presently out of work. While I could easily reference reams of survey results to make my case, I fear no amount of statistical citation will win this debate. And in the final analysis, it is not really about the numbers; it is about perceptions.”
I actually like this idea, that it’s all about perception. After all, what is reality if not perception?
