The best paying jobs of 2017

U.S. News and World Report just published the results of its survey of the best-paying jobs for 2017:

  1. Anesthesiologist
  2. Surgeon
  3. Oral and maxillofacial surgeon
  4. Obstetrician and gynecologist
  5. Orthodontist
  6. Physician
  7. Psychiatrist
  8. Pediatrician
  9. Dentist
  10. Prosthodontist

You can find similar lists for lowest-paying jobs, jobs most in demand, the most rewarding jobs, and the most stressful jobs. But apart from entertainment value, and the advertisements websites can show you on the sidebar while you’re reading, the lists are meaningless.

Job lists are a problem unique to humans. It would not occur to an owl to start hunting lions — that’s just not in its nature.
