Where were the brilliant titans of finance who've destroyed our economy educated? Mostly at Harvard, but that's not the only school that has failed to teach basic economics. Deborah Barrow has the larger list here.
If either of my daughters ever decide to go into business, I will strongly encourage them to begin a small business and apprentice under someone who's ethical and successful in business. I certainly won't discourage a college education, but it's one thing to study theory, (it has it's place), but if someone wants to learn anything, they must do. This applies to business, cooking, art, music, driving, prayer....anything.
