Steve Sailer: How the college prestige racket works

Dr. Faust At Harvard

Comments on Sailer's article can be read or made here.

Sailer and others have convinced me that the primary value of most college degrees in the contemporary United States is in proving that the person who receives them was smart enough to get into a given university in the first place. This, of course, is extremely inefficient, and the expense of a prestigious degree helps maintain the position of the ruling class.
