In this quote, Bill Vaughn is poking fun at the way economists analyze the value of education. When economists say that a college education can add thousands to one’s lifetime income, Vaughn jokes that this extra income is then spent by the individual on sending his own son to college.

So while economists point to financial benefits, Vaughn suggests the money may just go towards continuing the cycle of education for future generations. His quote lightheartedly questions or critiques the simple monetary perspective economists take by implying the monetary “returns” are put right back into more education.
