Does a degree in "social justice" kill your career prospects?
Not at all.
Junior is doing one of those degrees at York even as I write these words...
Fact is, there's lots of multi-billion dollar foundations out there that are required by law to give out x percentage of their wealth every year.
Given that these foundations are the legacy of the uber-capitalists who have run America into the ground, it may seem an unlikely gambit to have young socialists stepping up to run their foundations.
But all the young capitalists are doing their MBA degrees at Wharton, and they wouldn't be caught dead doing humanitarian shit, other than those token gestures you have to make to create a "well-rounded" CV.
Which leaves a vacuum in the world of philanthropic foundations.
Thank God York University is there to plug the gap.
