While some estimates run as high as one million dollars, others conclude that if you you factor out issues like mega-billionaires and the cost of tuition at elite schools and the time taken to earn the degree and the difference between associates and bachelors degrees, it might be less than two-hundred thousand. Not chump change to be sure, but there is the practical reality of who can earn the bachelor degree and how many of them the economy can truly support.
For those looking no further than high school. MSN offers this story, or list, of good jobs for high school grads.
