A big assumption you are making here is that the“top schools" actually provide an education that can helps other sectors. In reality, the ivy league schools you mention here are no more than elite producing machines, and don’t prepare graduates to “help” anyone. You are assuming that the people graduating from these schools are prepared to do something other than generate obscene amounts of profit in industry sectors that don’t make anything. I think your assumption is wrong. I think this article has a very valid point, but I think you should aim the talent pointer at different examples.
