University courses in the U.S. are popular in Europe and Australia.
A report by The Economist found that in France, Britain, Italy and Spain, universities are the most popular academic and vocational career options for young people.
But how much of that is due to the country’s booming economy and the fact that the education system has always been based in Dublin?
In a new book, The American Dream: How the Economy Is Creating a Global Talent Economy, economist and author Paul Krugman explores why universities are so attractive to young people from countries like the U of T and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
It is not only the financial rewards of these institutions, he said.
In a series of interviews, he has spent time in places such as India and Australia where students are not so lucky, and in places like Mexico and Egypt where students cannot get the education that they want.
But he said that it is not just about the financial.
It is also about a different kind of inequality: the idea that people from poorer countries are not getting the same opportunities as the richer ones.
“If you have a country like Mexico, where the income gap between the rich and the poor is the biggest, then there is a big difference in the quality of education that people get,” Krugman said.
“That is what makes this country such an attractive place to invest and to live in.”
“We are very much in the same boat,” he added.
“The gap is so large between the top and the bottom.
In India, you are not even allowed to go to university for free, so people from the very bottom are really at a disadvantage.”
Education reform, the new economic realityKrugman said that many students in poorer countries have been left behind by their parents.
The country’s economic downturn and the global recession have made it harder for them to pay for college, and so the country is not making much progress.
And that has contributed to the inequality that exists.
“We see the effects of inequality in education all over the world,” he said, citing the United States, where education reform has made it much harder for poorer students to get the same degrees.
The OECD report on education in the United Nations published this year said that in many countries, the number of students in schools with higher educational qualifications has increased dramatically, while in others the number has decreased.
In the United Kingdom, for example, the proportion of students with degrees has increased from about 5 percent in 2003 to nearly 14 percent today, according to the Office for National Statistics.
The U.K. government, however, said that education is not the sole cause of inequality.
“Education is not one of the causes of inequality, as the data suggest,” it said in a statement.
But what about the impact of the economy?
“If we look at the other side of the ledger,” Krugman added, “the inequality is much higher in the other sectors of the U, the high-tech sector.”
Department of Education recently released its annual report on the state of education, and it noted that the proportion with degrees fell from nearly 24 percent in 2006 to 15 percent in 2014.
The report found that the drop was due to fewer students taking up jobs in technology, engineering and other higher education.
And while the number with a bachelor’s degree increased by 4.4 percent, the increase was smaller in the non-technology sector, which accounted for 14.9 percent of the total.
But there is still much more inequality in the education sector than we know, and that has a direct impact on students, Krugman said, adding that it shows how important education is for young adults.
“That is really a huge reason why we need more education for young adult people, because the opportunity cost is enormous,” he explained.
“I think that is a key reason why a lot of young people don’t get the opportunities that they need.
Because the education gap between young adults and adults is enormous.”
Krugmans book, which was released in September, was published in conjunction with the Ullamas Books Festival, an event that aims to showcase books that are in demand and that are part of the next wave of books, in Ireland and across Europe.
He is a founding editor of the book, and he hopes that the book will encourage readers to look beyond the usual suspects.
“There is something really inspiring about people taking their first steps in a new industry, and then coming back to a familiar, old place,” he told ABC News.
“We all love the idea of starting a new business, and having a little fun and being a part of something new.”
