Perspectivele sumbre ale absolventilor de facultate din SUA

Iata un articol din Gandul in acest sens:

Joseph Stiglitz, despre perspectivele sumbre ale absolvenţilor de facultate din SUA: „Îi aşteaptă o viaţă de datorii, fără perspective de viitor”

Iata ce se arata:

„Laureatul premiului Nobel pentru economie Joseph Stiglitz a vorbit despre viitorul sumbru care îi aşteaptă pe absolvenţii americani de facultate. Stiglitz a subliniat că tinerii au de plătit împrumuturile record luate pentru a-şi finanţa studiile, însă şansele lor de a-şi găsi un job sunt extrem de mici, scrie Business Insider, citând un interviu acordat de economist pentru The Take Away.

„Oameni cu abilităţi diferite, cu background diferit, cu educaţie diferită au oportunităţi extrem de diferite. Dacă eşti în vârf, şansele tale în viitor sunt foarte bune. Dar dacă te-ai dus la una dintre acele şcoli făcute doar pentru profit, viitorul tău este sumbru. Statisticile arată că şansele de a-ţi găsi un job, pentru care ai plătit taxe mari de studiu, sunt foarte mici. Şi, din cauza legislaţiei, chiar dacă intri în faliment, nu vei putea scăpa niciodată de împrumuturile pe care le-ai luat pentru a-ţi finanţa studiile. Aşa că pe absolvenţi îi aşteaptă o viaţă de datorii, fără perspective de viitor”, a comentat Joseph Stiglitz.

El a mai amintit că America se numea odinioară ţara tuturor posibilităţilor. „Acum acest lucru s-a dus”, a conchis Stiglitz. Iar Nouriel Roubini a fost de acord cu el şi a recomandat interviul pe Twitter.”

Trist. Situatie grea…

  1. Toţi românii sperau să trăiască ca americanii. Iată, visul începe să se împlinească, americanii vor ajunge să trăiască ca românii.

  2. Interesant de citit pe Wikipedia:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Stiglitz

    ” Once incomplete and imperfect information are introduced, Chicago-school defenders of the market system cannot sustain descriptive claims of the Pareto efficiency of the real world. Thus, Stiglitz’s use of rational-expectations equilibrium assumptions to achieve a more realistic understanding of capitalism than is usual among rational-expectations theorists leads, paradoxically, to the conclusion that capitalism deviates from the model in a way that justifies state action—socialism—as a remedy. [26]

    The effect of Stiglitz’s influence is to make economics even more presumptively interventionist than Samuelson preferred. Samuelson treated market failure as the exception to the general rule of efficient markets. But the Greenwald-Stiglitz theorem posits market failure as the norm, establishing „that government could potentially almost always improve upon the market’s resource allocation.” And the Sappington-Stiglitz theorem „establishes that an ideal government could do better running an enterprise itself than it could through privatization” [27] (Stiglitz 1994, 179).[26]”

    Dar, iarasi, e interesant de citit, tot din Wikipedia, despre ce spunea Simon Kuznetz, laureat al Premiului Nobel pentru economie in 1971:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Kuznets

    „Kuznets helped the U.S. Department of Commerce to standardize the measurement of GNP. He disapproved, however, of its use as a general indication of welfare,[1] writing that „the welfare of a nation can scarcely be inferred from a measure of national income.” [2]

    Kuznets was also one of the earliest workers on development economics, in particular collecting and analyzing the empirical characteristics of developing countries (1965, 1966, 1971, and 1979). His major thesis, which argued that underdeveloped countries of today possess characteristics different from those that industrialized countries faced before they developed, helped put an end to the simplistic view that all countries went through the same „linear stages” in their history and launched the separate field of development economics—which now focused on the analysis of modern underdeveloped countries’ distinct experiences.

    Among his several discoveries which sparked important theoretical research programs was his discovery of the inverted U-shaped relation between income inequality and economic growth (1955, 1963). In poor countries, economic growth increased the income disparity between rich and poor people. In wealthier countries, economic growth narrowed the difference. By noting patterns of income inequality in developed and underdeveloped countries, he proposed that as countries experienced economic growth, the income inequality first increases and then decreases. The reasoning was that in order to experience growth, countries had to shift from agricultural to industrial sectors. While there was little variation in the agricultural income, industrialization led to large differences in income. Additionally, as economies experienced growth, mass education provided greater opportunities which decreased the inequality and the lower income portion of the population gained political power to change governmental policies.”
