The China Bubble

China's Bubble

There are so many articles out there about China's bubble. How it's the end of the world, and China is going to lead us into economic doom. This article is much more balanced, and points out how there are really two bubbles. One within China, the other the suppliers outside of China. From German high tech good, to raw materials from Australia and Brazil.

China does have a lot of challenges, but amazingly since Deng took power, China has prospered. I would not be against China, if I was a betting person.

PhD's - Are they worth it?

Good question in Quora, if getting a PhD makes sense.

Am I crazy to leave a six figure salary to get a PhD in computer science?

The person had a 6 figure job with a BS and MS in statistics, and went back to get a PhD in Computer Science.

The person answered yes, but more for the intangibles.

My 2 cents:

If you want to teach College, you need a PhD. The key is you need to get a PhD from the right college and major, or you just wasted your time. Key things to look at are the drop out rate, hire rate, and expected salaries. From what I have read, there is a surplus of PhDs due to a system that has more supply, than demand.
