Just an aside comment here. The mention about a decline of college educated males after '77, could be a sign of an unintended effect. The old GI bill had a time limit of 10yrs after service in the military (I'm not sure of what the current bill has.). Part of this was a scaling back of military benefits after the Vietnam conflict. I wonder if this could be a partial trigger by reducing the ability of guys to afford college? If so what about when we start scaling back the budget for ex-service members? There WILL be calls to reduce spending just like last time. Maybe that will set us up for a future downturn in skill levels and education when we NEED both.
