Having clicked on the link, led me add a quote from the article
Recent college graduates who as seniors scored highest on a standardized test to measure how well they think, reason and write — skills most associated with a liberal arts education — were far more likely to be better off financially than those who scored lowest
Gee, is that a surprise? Employers don't rush out to hire those who have lower abilities to think, reason, and write?
Nothing to see here...
