Indeed. There are only 946 billionaires worldwide right now. If there were less than a thousand teachers in the world perhaps they'd be afforded higher value, which may actually be possible as education becomes more automated. There are universities in India and elsewhere already using MIT's online courses (though they're free at this point).
