I can’t state that this is accurate, but it appears that reports that Bob Chapman (International Forecaster) has died are true.  Here is the first information I received yesterday morning, sent to us from our friend Melanie.

Funeral tomorrow in Albandale, FL.  I can’t believe it.

RBN is now going to replay an interview.

I certainly admire his intelligence and guts.  Hopefully, he did not pay the price for this, as others have.

This fall, my oldest grandchild will be starting her junior year at the University of Missouri.  She is very bright, studies hard and gets very good grades.  But, like so many of her peers, she has not figured out what she wants to do after she graduates.  But she does want to go on to graduate school.  My daughter and her father are paying here undergraduate expenses but she is on her own if she extends her education and pursues a Masters Degree.  Like so many of her generation, she believes that getting a Masters Degree will assure her a job upon graduating.  I took her out to lunch yesterday and told her that the most important thing is not the Masters Degree – but it’s the profession that the degree is in that matters most.  I urged her to consider a field that offers the best employment opportunities… perhaps health care or geriatrics, and told her to have a serious talk with the school’s counselors, because the last thing she needs is to graduate without a degree, without a job and tens of thousands of dollars in debt.  Of course she didn’t want to hear what I had to say.  And I wish her road to success would be easier, but look at the following article that focuses in on this very subject, and if you have children or grandchildren in the same situation, you will want to read this article:

Record number of PhD recipients on food stamps
CIGA Eric

This news may be a little stale, but the message is still eye-opening to say the least. If public actually looked at what’s being swept under the rug as meaningless information about USA, Inc., I suspect they’d be horrified by what they saw. This obscure headline is just another reason why Jim’s statement of QE to infinity is totally correct.

Headline: Record number of PhD recipients on food stamps

Right now we have a record number of PhD recipients on food stamps and other forms of welfare. From 2007 to 2010, the number of PhD recipients receiving entitlements has tripled to 33,655 and the number of master’s degree holders on food stamps and other forms of welfare nearly tripled during that same time period to 293,029, according to an Urban Institute study cited by the Chronicle of Higher Education. This is shocking and I imagine its not what comes to mind when most people think of welfare recipients. This study proves that having multiple degrees doesn’t guarantee financial success, especially when you consider the high cost of college and a move by Republicans Tuesday to block a Democratic bill to preserve low interest rates for millions of college students’ loans. The Democratic bill would keep interest rates for subsidized Stafford loans at 3.4% for an additional year, rater than doubling automatically for new loans starting July 1.
