Screw military leaders and members of royalty. This is as powerful as it gets. Shaping and fertilizing the minds of tomorrow. Every great inventor or innovator owes credit to their education, formal or otherwise. Every great leader had to be taught how to be that way. Every great lottery winner...okay, so maybe they didn't need to go to school for that. But if they didn't have a great economics professor, their winnings may be gone in a fortnight.
