I don't know what you've seen, but everyone I know that did not go to college is not making big money and they certainly don't have any power. Don't get me wrong I know that there are exceptions to this, and there are many people with college degrees working at Starbucks. Anybody that is lucky in the business and finance worlds have a college degree, and if not they've been working for 20+ years. It is largely becoming popular to only higher managers who have an MBA or a masters degree in a business related area. While it is possible to have a successful, high paying job without a college education, those stories are few and far between.
