Class Differences

On Art College:

I agree with your comment about class differences, and income disparity. I also think CEO's are generally overpaid by a multiple of about 40.

However, it is hard to argue with the success of SCAD. They created this college from nothing, and in 20 years they made it the largest art school in the country. Along the way, they were the major catalyst for the revival of Savannah, and have established an important presence in midtown Atlanta. The key to their success (as I understand it): they teach students how to be artists AND make a living at it.

Incidentally, Reagan set the psychological table for the class war that has ensued, but Bill Clinton opened the flood gates on outsourcing (mixed metaphor, I know).
