Really enjoyed this post Erik - the future of education is an area I am really interested in but have only ever looked at school vs university. I think this point you make is the most salient in many ways "The first step is releasing some of the social pressure on people to go to universities."

Is it likely that this effect is predicted in Peter Turchin's "elite overproduction"? Also its counter would be "mid underproduction" or Yarvin's "Etsy-ification" of craft culture over prestige.

Erik, I'm building an EdTech company to make the skills of world-class entrepreneurship affordable for 3 billion people! In comparison to elite business schools, it'll provide: a) higher quality via hands-on & results-based training by the world's greatest entrepreneurs b) Netflix prices c) the world's largest community of entrepreneurs.

I'd love to share more details! What's the best way to reach out?
