Today, my answer must change. In light of the regulatory vision being laid out by President-elect Donald Trump and his advisers, I’d recommend college students bone up on hustling and swindling instead.

The Con Man Economy: Take The Money And Run
The advice that we should give students who want to succeed in the Con Man Economy is to follow Donald Trump's example and learn how to con your way to riches like The Donald. Forget about taking all of those tough courses in STEM. The Trump Administration is making it easier for predators to succeed by getting rid of agencies like the Consumer Financial Protection Agency (CFPA). The CFPA was created as part of the Dodd-Frank bill which established regulations which were designed to prevent a recurrence of the financial crisis which produce the Great Recession. The President who promised to take care of the little guy is creating an economy that makes it easier for the big guys to fleece the little guys. Get ready for the Con Man Economy.
