Billionaire U: Why Harvard Mints Mega-Rich Alums

CNBC reports:
Harvard has graduated some 52 billionaires, with a collective fortune of $205 billion, to lead Wealth-X's global list of universities ranked by alumni worth $1 billion or more. That's nearly twice as many as the No. 2 school, the University of Pennsylvania, which has 28 billionaire alumni worth a collective $112 billion. And these numbers don't include either Microsoft's Bill Gates or Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg both of whom attended Harvard but didn't stay to get their degree. Together they are worth some $45 billion.
How many low information voters know that Harvard doesn't pay any taxes???
