This statement is of course only true if the ONLY job for one with a
Ph.D. was as a professor at a Ph.D. granting institution. Fortunately,
there are numerous jobs in industry which reqire a Ph.D. degree. In
addition, there are more positions for those with Ph.D.s in
institutions that do not grant Ph.D.s (i. e. Cal. State Universities
and Jr. Colleges) than there are at Ph.D. granting institutions.
Something CONSIDERABLY greater than a one-fold replication is necessary
for continuity of the scientific, industrial and educational enterprise
in this country.
