“Ed Dante” earns $66,000/year writing other people’s papers for them. He works for an online firm that receives requests, charges large fees, and writes papers for students. [Yes, these do exist.] Essays for English classes, reports for history courses, business proposals, even graduate theses in any number of subjects. You name it. Mr. Dante (no doubt a pseudonym) chronicled the nature of his rather shameless employment in a (not surprisingly) well-written, sometimes humorous, and thoroughly devastating article published in The Chronicle of Higher Education. An excerpt:
In the past year, I’ve written roughly 5,000 pages of scholarly literature, most on very tight deadlines. But you won’t find my name on a single paper.
