[...] And a phd is a totally different beast. Getting a phd and ending up outside your field is a waste of time and training- the phd system burns human capital in an unhealthy way. Yes, phds don't end up destitute, but thats the wrong comparison.
One can actually find themselves
employable after a PhD, due to the widespread perception that PhD's are "overqualified" for everything except being a professor.
