The Demographic Window of Opportunity: Liberal Education in the New Century.
Carnevale, Anthony P.; Strohl, Jeff
Peer Review, v3 n2 p10-13 Win 2001
Discusses economic realities for liberal arts educators to consider: the knowledge economy requires skills learned through liberal education; despite advantages, liberal arts bachelor's degrees don't lead to the best entry-level jobs; when liberal education leads to graduate or professional school, success is guaranteed; and under-investment in liberal education is a case of market failure to recognize latent value.
