Growth and economic prosperity rests on the individual and not government. Do you feel the current economy will encourage more adults to pursue that degree or dream they have been putting off?

It absolutely does!
I am vowing to never go through this again. I am finishing my bachelors and masters over the next 2 years, and I am hopefully positioning myself to excel in any economic climate. I am paying as I go, accumulating no more debts, and being smart with my money. Education is the only real safety that you have to fall back on... (If 2 equally impressive people are going for the same job, the one with more education will win 9 out of 10 times!)

I guess we are all victim of this so called "Economic Crisis", and as you said,
Quote:

... What we become lies on ourselves, life is not a matter of choices but a matter of what we choose... This crisis should trigger us to finish our studies... We should always be motivated in such way we can see our real goal and we should take action also in order to get though it...
