    re: Lamenting unemployment with incredible degrees.

    Ever considered entrepreneurialism?

    From your friendly venture capitalist.

    Its wild and wooley, but it pays in the long term.

  2. James Joyner says:

    Working for yourself is about the only way the get truly wealthy. It’s also a great way to go truly broke.

  3. Drew says:

    Yeah, truer words have never been spoken, but you have more control, if you are talented, confident and have the risk tolerance.

    This theme might be worthy of an essay:

    Do we lament suboptimal job opportunities………….or do we lament the fact that the entreprenurial spirit no longer has the exalted place it once had, to create those opportunities. And why? Social norms? Ageing, risk averse culture?? Taxes take away the gold ring?

    For example: A NASA person is reduced to some bastardized form of ACORN Muslim outreach??? Sorry, couldn’t resist.
