It is in society's best technological and economical interest to have the best and the brightest go into areas in which they are brightest. However, it is also in society's best sociological and survival interests to have the competent but less affluent have the opportunity to enter the higher paying areas which probably are also more expensive to teach. Subsidies should not come from selected fellow students. Excuse this duplicate message. The first was garbled in editing when I was informed of other messages coming through. Oh, for a new system.
