What did they have the Ph.D. in?? i believe there’s a big difference between those with Ph.D.’s in art history and those with Ph.D.’s in physics.

They had Phd's in physics, and were working in the financial industry. Way out of their leagues.

Ahh..That explains it.

To get a Ph.D., you have to learn a lot about one thing and do original research on one small aspect of your field to become THE expert in that one small thing you research (I know - I'm doing it)

The problem with many Ph.D.'s is that they forget they are experts in just that one small area and begin to believe they know everything about everything!
