    In 1970, trying to go to college in China was usually a death penalty offense and it could get you sent to a Gulag in the Soviet Union unless the local party boss liked you.

    Brazil was run by a dictator in 1970?  I think so.  I should check.  I don't think that you got into a university in Brazil in 1970 unless you dad had paid off some generals.

    But those 3 countries are a big chunk of the world's population.

    Even if the same percentage of Americans go to college, I certainly hope that our percentage of the world's total is smaller because students in China, Brazil and the former Soviet Union can now go to college.
