John Sutherland from the Guardian has me wondering if I should start to be worried about my future job prospects .

Although on the other hand as he quotes Professor David Goodstein

“Producing PhDs is simply not the purpose of our system of education. Its purpose instead is to produce citizens capable of operating a Jeffersonian democracy, and also if possible capable of contributing to their own and to the economic well being.”

Which is nice, if very US-centric. It reads even better if you substitute any education level for PhDs.
