It\’s The Guardian, of all places, who actually managed to get this story correct in its opening lines.
The value of holding a degree has been eroded as the share of the population with a university education has more than doubled over two decades, a study shows.
Glory be, that straight old supply and demand thing. Increase supply and price paid will fall so as to match up demand for that greater supply.
What troubles me though is that their education editor seems to have a greater command of economics than either their economics leader writer (Mr. Chakrabortty) or any of their columnists.
