A comic strip reduces America’s for-profit-education tax-syphon …

… to its most basic moving parts.



Two academic men in suits chat. Looks like Harvard Yard in the background.

So the for-profits mop up $32 billion in taxpayer money a year, even though a majority of students quickly drop out!

And for presiding over these empires of failure, the average for-profit CEO is paid over $7 million!

— 7 million? Seriously?


— Does it come with balloons and a 4-foot check?

No, I imagine it’s a discreet transfer of wealth.


UD thanks Dirk.

    “Looks like Harvard Yard” – UD, that must have hurt all Yalies (and the fans of Doonesbury, too). Was it a deliberate swipe at the arrogant ivy league – or just an oversight?

    econprof: Oops. Right you are. Must be Yale. An oversight.
