This final note today, in which the booming commodities market from the past decade comes home to roost.
A survey out from Payscale, Inc that we saw on Bloomberg today shows that last year Harvard graduates made less money per year than almumi of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
Not a huge difference — almost $57,000 a year for miners and $54,000 for Harvard.
But still, when you remember four years of tuition and fees in Cambridge costs almost four times what a similar stint in Rapid City, South Dakota does, it’s not nothing.
