    The contraction I was speaking off definitely extends to energy and peak oil. The big problem is are we are training young people to solve these problems; or only make money?

      Diminishing oil supply and contracting economy are driving all other forms of contraction, including education.  The pie is not getting higher.  It's getting thinner.  For educational contraction to stop, those with superabundant wealth would need to start letting it trickle down in much greater amounts.  That's not likely to happen.
