PhDs. Overqualified or underqualified?

Article in Science Magazine tackles the question of whether a PhD program overqualifies or underqualifies someone.  My opinion is that with training nearly exclusively in research in one single research area that PhDs have a valuable, but limited skill set.  Furthermore, many people are impressed with those who have PhDs, not least those that have a PhD.  A PhD degree is primarily only relevant in the business sector of colleges and universities.
