This whole coronavirus pandemic has really got me thinking about all of our children’s future. The world is suboptimal for us adults now. But what will their world be like in this already brutally competitive place full of constant rejection?
Our country already has over 22 million Americans unemployed as of April 17. By the end of summer, the unemployment figure will likely exceed 40 million if we do not open up at least parts of the economy by then.
In big cities, expect to spend up to $1,000,000 providing for your child through college. In 18-hour cities, expect to pay at least $250,000. Either way you cut it, raising children is expensive. Now imagine spending all that time and money and not being able to find a job, let alone a fulfilling career? Terrible!
If extremely wealthy and famous people are willing to risk their reputations and their freedom and bribe their kids’ way into well-ranked private universities for better employment opportunities, what hope do the rest of us have?
We need career insurance.
