Are there too many people getting college degrees? Will the countries that dominate world economics in the future need fewer people with advanced education?


There are countries that I suspect need fewer people with advanced education. Take India for example. They have tons of advanced degrees holders working in customer service jobs. Might it be better for the world economy if many of these folks chose to learn a trade instead?
