Wall Street Losing Luster For Ivy Kids?
The most reliable leading indicator of Wall Street’s future prospects is the way recent graduates of Harvard, Princeton and Yale — supposedly our best and brightest — choose to spend their time after graduating. For years, hordes of graduates from those schools beat a fast path to Wall Street. Now the road is far more difficult to travel. For those who choose to make the journey, there is the prospect of incurring the wrath and scorn of fellow students who make up the various Occupy Wall Street movements — a fact not likely to deter many — and then there are dimmer prospects for a job on Wall Street generally, what with the slowdown in business.
