Yesterday while posting in a different thread, I got into an interesting argument with a fellow GBAtemper on whether we should subsidize university education in America even for degrees that do NOT produce any money at all. I am going to keep this short in order to not bore and instead I hope to inspire a discussion with arguments over the issue at large. Should someone that worked their ass off in University(engineers,doctors,accountants,finance majors,science,computer science,ect) have to get taxed for students that essentially major in degrees that do not produce money like creative arts,liberal arts,psychology,humanitarian studies,ect? My argument is that an engineer that busted their balls doing difficult math should be entitled to keep their money since they earned it,why should society foot the bill for a 200,000 USD bill for a useless liberal arts degree? If you owned a farm and grew 100 tomatoes for your family to eat and you had blisters all over your body,should you be forced to hand over 50 of those tomatoes so that a man that was finger painting all day can have access to the same things you do?
