Less than 5% of those in the finance industry could invest/trade profitably if they lost their jobs tomorrow. Trading is a game where the 5-10% make all the money from the remaining 90-95%.

It is simply not possible to have a world where everyone moves to the finance sector, a sector which on its own has no value. That does not mean that im discouraging people from going into the finance sector, i plan to move into it in the near term too.

Wallstreet is only surviving now because of the bailouts from the US government, but who is going to bailout the US? All im saying is that when the time comes for it's decline, the Computer Science degree will be of far more value than a finance degree or MBA.
