How do Corporations Choose?

From a A WALL STREET JOURNAL Letter to the Editor
Reader Harvey Karten concludes that the recent Journal article about employers favoring graduates of big state universities over graduates of the Ivies is an indication that there are still things that government can do better than private industry.
I think it just as likely that the corporations are tired of the self-absorbed and self-indulgent TFA wanna-bes, primarily scions of the upper-class, graduates of the Ivies and are instead looking for candidates who had to work for a degree and who might be more likely to succeed at working for a living.

  1. Don't forget have to work for a living. Bankruptcy doesn't clear student loan debt. Hard to have wage slaves if they don't have huge debt burdens, which the Ivies make sure that even their less privileged students avoid http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=awmXmlBFY_n8&refer=us
