Piled high and Deep

Among the casualities of the economic slowdown is Ph.D. programs at universities across the country. Fewer students are being admitted to programs, as they are learning to live with economic realities. A professor in Chicago is quoted -
"the number of positions available for people having a Ph.D. is also decreasing; it makes some sense not to train too many of them, for a few years at least."
