The point I was trying to make was it is a very limited field of opportunity (very little application in the private sector, for example) so you should be less surprised when a person in that field of study is unemployed longer than, say, an engineer or information technology student.

So no one should aspire to be a history teacher? Is it not a worthwhile thing to do? Under your scenario, who would ever become a history teacher? This is the problem with a society that places monetary value above all other values. When the monopoly game ends, and the richest 8 people, who already have more wealth than the bottom 3.5 billion people, have more wealth than the other 3.5 billion, will the everybody voluntarily lay down and die? Starve? No, there will be violent revolution. History tells us so. Oh, wait, there won't be any history teachers, so no one will do what it takes to prevent disaster.
