More on Higher Education and Employment

Some adjuncts have interesting luck.
How the University Works: Higher Education and the Low-Wage Nation (Cultural Front) by Marc Bousquet and Cary Nelson (Paperback - Jan 1, 2008)

That is the book behind the blog: http://howtheuniversityworks.com/wordpress/

I have serious doubts about whether or not he is right, but it offers a different perspective.

For a valuable comparison:
Bottom line, PhD programs are not usually a good alternative to law school, though the PhD in business is (average pay ~100k a year, seven positions for every five graduates, most graduate without significant debt -- it is also a great alternative to an MBA).
