Niall Ferguson on the Educational Credentials You Look for in a President

Niall Ferguson:

The president wants this election to be the White House vs. Wall Street. But if it’s really Harvard Business School vs. Harvard Law School, I’ll take the M.B.A. over the J.D. every time.

Something Ferguson might want to consider is that Mitt Romney has a J.D. from Harvard just like Barack Obama. And George W. Bush—perhaps not America’s finest leader—has an MBA from Harvard just like Mitt Romney.
