I only jumped in since this was a top thread on the main page.

I wish you are right. But logically, the answer appears to be no.

The underlying assumption of the posed question is that a PhD, a chem PhD to
be more specific, is a degree of job training program. The assumption is
far off from the research nature of a supposed PhD program. Even if you come
up with a Nobel-prize caliber invention that makes you a Nobel laureate in
15 years, it does necessarily qualify you to get a job in the interim.

If your intention is to get a job, you should not embark on a PhD in any
real scientific discipline to begin with. Instead, you should consider
business school, law school, medical school, and perhaps engineering school.
Too bad, I also realized this too late.

The upshot with science is that we are not in need of real progress. The
much glorified wall street doctrines and hyped globalization only serve to
move things around so that the movers can, virtually, take a transaction
charge and someone else pays the bill. There is no created value just by
moving stuff (money and people) around, as the other posts elaborated
already.

As to the general economy, I wish I am wrong. But I think we will be in
essentially the same market for 5-10 years, much like the 90's Japanese
society. Sure, we will all survive and when this is all over, we can
appreciate learning this lesson.
