Hi everyone. Recently I've been thinking about education and its correlation with financial prosperity. Contrary to the popular belief that more education leads to more money, I think that an education vs. income graph is closer to a bell curve. Look at the people with PhD's and M.D.'s. They are the most educated group of people on the planet. They receive 8 or more years of post-tertiary education. They are very wealthy, yes. But rarely to do Doctors make over a six-figure income. They are rich, but Doctors are not billionaires. The multi-millionaires and billionaires, in fact, have less formal education than the Doctors. The "truly wealthy" are the businessmen, the sports stars, the actors, etc. For example, Mark Zuckerburg and Bill Gates never graduated from college. They are both worth billions. Kobe Byrant makes absurd amounts of money through endorsements, and he barely graduated high school. So, I am asking BHW , if someone's wants to fulfill his financial aspirations, should his ultimate goal be to advance his education? I'm asking you this because I was just accepted into Yale today, and I'm contemplating my future in IM. Should I continue to pursue Blackhatting, or should I focus on my studies? Maybe both? Let me know what you all think.
