In last month’s column, I cited opinions from other nations about our health-care system. This month, I’m going out on a limb with a saw. After recently speaking with some high school graduates who are going on to college, I found that their almost universal choice of major was either finance or computer science. The really smart ones occasionally mentioned some high-paying medical specialty — never family medicine because that doesn’t pay the college loans — or that they wanted to become lawyers. None were even slightly interested in fields like nursing, social work, or teaching. There’s no money in that. So, do J. P. Morgan, Donald Trump, and Bill Gates really need these kids to make them another billion bucks?
