Last quote by James Altucher

If you're eighteen years old and you want to think about, Well, how am I going to have millions of dollars later on?', the first thing I'll tell you to do is don't spend two hundred thousand dollars on a college degree and waste four years of your life. Maybe that was good for your parents' generation, which means my generation. Maybe that was good ten years ago. It is no longer relevant right now.feedback

We still don't really know why [Donald Trump] won. I've seen probably 20 different opinions, on both sides, of why he won. It's a very interesting game to study and analyze, if you're interested in it, but if you're not interested in it, I don't see how it changes your life, specifically. There's not much in the news that's going to change your life.feedback

Right now, 48 percent of jobs held by recent college graduates are jobs where you don't even need a college degree. It's unclear who the college degree is helping.
