    Sure I did. You presented an "If-then". I responded to the "then" and questioned the rigidity of it. All you are doing is discussing the "if"...half of your initial comment.

    Moderator's Warning:
    The dead end kids: Young, unemployed and facing tough futureOK, in case folks think my last warning was specific, it wasn't. Personal attacks need to cease, now.

    I'm afraid you're a bit confused. The constrictions on human capital acquisition are necessarily tied to constrictions on acquisition of practical experience due to employers' discrimination against the uncertified, to say nothing of the mere time wasted by extended compulsory schooling.

    Go read your initial comment on this and add in the part you left out. It's important.

    I'll admit that I unfortunately didn't point out that extended compulsory schooling will restrict one's labor market activity because of the inability to be in two places at once. I'm sorry; I mistakenly assumed that we didn't have time machines.

    You seem to be having some trouble addressing the topic of the thread. While I'm sure that's entirely accidental, please steady your hands and type carefully.

    Every single day I just wanted to quit but it made my dad so happy. I notice none of my nephews work. I'm really proud of my older brothers. They went through it too.
