Yale Tuition for the Libertarian Crowd

This article from the Atlantic points out an interesting chart – the cost to attend Yale undergrad, measured in grams of gold, is unchanged since 1900 – it has fluctuated wildly since then, but currently gold’s value is at historic heights, so it only takes about 1000g of gold to cover  1 year at New Haven’s finest.

I’m not sure what that means, but it’s damn interesting.

I'm a Naval Officer living in Southern California. I hope to be attending law school in the next year or two, and I started writing this blog out of a desire to improve my writing and critical thinking skills after a couple years outside of academia.
