Day 60: It’s Day 60

I have nothing special planned. In fact, this is going to be short because I’m so tired.

Tyler Cowen spoke about college at work today. He breaks with the libertarian norm and believes college is truly about education, not just signaling. I think he’s partially right. It likely varies between fields. For example, an English degree has a much higher degree of signaling vs actual education than a mechanical engineering degree does. Still, it’s important for people to know how to do things, and college is a great way of teaching those specializations. Perhaps the problem, then isn’t college; it’s what people choose to study.

Two days until the weekend. How exciting.
