NOT THE CRABBIEST ACADEMIC IN THE BLOGOSPHERE?

From Professor Munger's Monday Links.
Why a lot of "educated" folks won't get hired. Boiled down:  because expensive colleges offer a lot of fraudulent "Indignation Studies" majors that (1) serve faculty ideological hobbies, and (2) are essentially content-free, in terms of social value or analytical skills.
Note: the expensive colleges. How aggressively are the content-heavy departments seeking changes in the way headquarters allocates resources, and searches?
