In honor of the latest fiscal crisis (here is a piece on “How the Shutdown is Affecting College Students“), I turn you to the august pages of the Wall Street Journal to see what the titans of finance and industry (such a fun phrase to type) are reading about.
Education, as it turns out! Here is a whole section dedicated to the topic (albeit, under the header of “Leadership”). Dig a little and you’ll find a piece about tough teachers, and another about the importance of failure for success (which, incidentally, is the final point in a series of convincing ones that I need in order to know that Scott Adams and I live with pretty different pictures of the world, even if they slightly overlap), and a set of predictions that I hope I can find ten years from now–if I could make a bet in Vegas I would parlay them as all false. But that’s me. Time will tell.
