Human capital acquitions

More on the 'Equity College'  June 9, 2010 – 12:57 pm
Talent Acquisition And Human Yesterday's post, "The Human Startup, " posited that debt financing faces some real problems as a model for making investments in human capital -- namely, college. It suggested that an equity-financing model which replaces tuition with an equity stake in an individual's future earnings could be at least a viable competitor, if not better suited to the "startup" type of investment made through college education.
he post received a considerable amount of support as well as a number of critical questions. I appreciate both, and as I make the case for equity financing of human capital, I'd like to remind both sides to keep an open mind and to put forward the best version of their arguments. That's what I'm trying to do; I'm not wedded to this particular idea -- or any idea, for that matter -- but I want to give it a full hearing. If you were 18 and were watching as your generation was being saddled with mountains of debt and given college educations which in a surprising percent of cases provided a rather poor return on investment -- see this story in The New York Times -- you'd be trying to fix the system too.
Mike Konczal asks, "Isn't equity ultimately about control/ownership? What controls would financiers have over their students to handle agency problems? "

Okay, here are two great sources of income that

Have worked out for me.
Not sure how you handle hard work, but I'm serious about the landscaping thing. You can take an online course in small engines etc for about 700 and be finished in 9 months so you can repair your own equipment. Buy some used equipment and basic insurance. Read about plants in your area, read about types of grasses and the care required to maintain them. There are many books on this. I try to put cards in lawns that don't look well kept. You can take out a loan of 5 g's or less to cover these expenses.
Also, sell things on ebay. I buy name brand clothing and other items from goodwills and thrift stores and sell them for ten times the price online. For example, spend 60 bucks at goodwill and sell for 650. You just have to know what to look for.

My vacation to springfield has made me so.......

Depressed.
my family is crazy. and that's why i moved 2,000 miles away.
the good part of my vacation was all of the good (and extremely cheap) vintage stuff i scored at the local salvation army and goodwills.
if i still lived in springfield illinois, i've decided that i would make my living off of e-bay. no one realizes the value of the some of the stuff i was finding. i had to... like a child, so i told them i did *need* an explanation, and i expected one.
well, that was the last night there, and from then on, our trip was terrible. i really didn't want it to end on a bad note, so that was the reason i needed to know WHY my mom wasn't going to be in the pictures. how terrible. everyone started screaming and yelling, whilst my b.f. was downstairs.
bad times.
