Richard Erlacher said:

What I regret is that so many talented programmers are slinging hash or mopping floors in order to feed their families rather than creating the vastly better code that they can produce, rather than the degreed "professionals" that are doing it so badly.

You are mixing apples with oranges, for your comparison to be logical you should compare talented programmers with degrees with talented programmers with no qualifications, who would you choose?
Usually talented people with no degrees start their own business or work as freelancers because it is much more rewarding than mopping floors or getting a low salary because of their qualifications.
