What study do you have that proves The American University System is the best in the World. It's not the best priced. Yes, we have many well known, well respected institutions across the country. However, we are pushing out more and more skill-less graduates with degress in social anthrapology, liberal arts, women's studies, etc. In some cases, the only work you can find with some of the degrees is teaching another person to get that degree. India, China, Japan, and many Euro nations are putting out many more graduates in the fields of science, math, etc. which leads to innovation and discovery.
