HT.. to the folks at Gluskin Sheff on a piece focusing on the labor markets.  If you are a parent/grandparent are you sitting down with your child/grandchild and advising them on fields of study in college?  Based on the following… don’t rely on their University to give them sound advice.  The following is a brief portion from their article:

“Perhaps part of the problem is that the U.S. education system is churning out graduates that are not really in great demand by the private business sector — we didn’t read much about the demand for social scientists and psychologists in the Beige Book. We’ve reached a state where more people are graduating with expertise in homeland security than in either computer science or math.”
