What's the correlation between liberals having more education and conservatives making more money?

An internet search shows that Liberals do indeed have morecollege education. It also shows that Conservatives make on average $50,000 a year, which is more than Liberals.

    This is exactly why Democrats need to take power. Republicans only want their own kind to be able to afford education in the first place to then turn around and blame lack of education and high crime rates on the poor and to say 'they deserve poverty as they don't try'.

    The study shows that liberals ARE more educated. So I'm asking why liberals, who ARE more educated, make less money.
  • More education, less common sense

  • @brontoraptor Because there's more to life than making money you selfish prick.

  • According to Austrian and British economics Nobel laureate Friedrich Hayek, “Money is one of the greatest instruments of freedom ever invented by man.” Perhaps, that’s the difference.

    Really? Then why do liberals constantly want us to hand it out?
  • This is due to colleges and universities being democratic or very liberal possibly. They may brainwash their students.
  • Almost every millionaire supports a free market economy and a society with individual freedoms, for obvious reasons. That would make the richest group of people in western countries liberals and not conservatives (who mostly live on farmlands and enjoy merely mildly prosperous lives).

    As for the general question on why educated people often do worse than non-educated people... I would say that this is the result of education existing outside the economical space. Most even modern forms of education put people into a sheltered environment where they do not really interact with economy and simply accumulate knowledge - at the same time, other people work and accumulate experience and build careers. 4-6-12 years of education (depending on a path one chooses to take), in stead of work, is a pretty significant handicap on the job market, and it could explain the observed discrepancy between one's education and income.

    I would also add that intelligence is anecdotally known to anti-correlate with practical skills, but that is a layman theory that, as far as I am concerned, is bogus in reality.
