Is college an expensive waste of time?

Peter Thiel and Vivek Wadhwa have debated this question repeatedly -- on 60 Minutes, at an Intelligence Squared debate in Chicago, and most recently at The Nantucket Project, a festival of ideas that was held on Nantucket, Massachusetts earlier this month....

"While there was certainly disagreement among the panelists about whether or not college is an expensive insurance product, as Thiel put it, there was also strong agreement that things need to change. As information becomes free, knowledge should be less expensive. "
