If you don't find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die

Investment Director by profession, aspiring chef by passion. I’m also the lead manager on emerging market bond and currency, as well as hedge funding strategies. Initially, I started out as an acquisition of fixed income and foreign exchange specialist, which was when I started managing most of the funds I run to date. Prior to joining the corporate space, I was a lecturer but quickly realised that perhaps I don’t have the patience to deal with students on a daily basis. While I enjoyed the subject matter I was teaching, I found the lecturing somewhat confining and very restrictive. I hold an MSc in Economics in addition to being a CFA charterholder.

Is education getting too expensive?

It doesn't have to be. There are many countries here in Europe that provide free quality education. It only gets expensive when you opt for a private school.

Look man! We can't all afford to live in Europe. Heck, most of us can't even afford to live in an area within a good school district! Not all public school system is created equal and if you want to get the best education, it costs big bucks too!!

It's no wonder many people don't see the value of education now. Education has become a privilege.

Education is sooo expensive! It took me a few years to finish college because I had to work too. It was tough but getting a degree really helps in getting a good job.

I wish there were more government programs that would focus on education. There are so many people who want to study but could not afford to do so because of the high cost. It's just really sad. disappointed face

I guess I was one of those few lucky people who had help from my parents for my education. I didn't struggle as much and I'm so thankful for having supportive parents!

I got a good education but it was pretty expensive. It would take a long time before I finish my student loans. Bummer!

Definitely!!! The more prestigious school or degree that you are after, the more expensive it is. It's sad. The government should compel the schools to be more affordable or at least subsidize it thru the taxes that we pay.

It's true. It's why I am lucky to qualify for a scholarship or else I won't be able to go to university.

I think a good education is worth it and if you want the best teachers, they do not come cheap.
