College Conspriacy (US Education Debt)

Okay, so, a friend shared this video today and it has gotten me thinking.

I'm fairly open about my views on the worth of university education - it's only worthwhile if what you plan to do actually requires it. It's only worthy if you aren't getting a meaningless degree to do something that someone like me (without a college education) could do just as easily - without the debt (a liberal arts degree to wind up working manual labor = debt for no reason). Education for the purpose of education is one thing, education that doesn't fulfill your needs is something else.

Meanwhile, watching the whole video through, there is a lot said about buying (not just investing) in solid wealth - physical gold and silver - and the very end it seems like a commercial for the organization.

So, economics NOT being one of the areas I dabble in often, I'm not quite sure how much of what it says makes honest sense and how much simply sounds good to boost the membership - presumably there are fees involved - (and the worth of THEIR physical gold and silver) within their organization. With the eyes of someone who worked along side someone else with a college degree - with the same pay btw - and less actual aptitude / skill for the job, I already have a biased view.
