A certification process that employers trust to show candidates to be articulate, capable of critical thinking, and have all the basic skills necessary to function in an office environment would be much better for the economy as a whole.
Not entirely true regarding cost. Employers love big state schools. See my thread on why they prefer them. Best bang for the buck for a bachelors IMO.

And there would have to be different certifications depending on industry and job position. A nurse can't be a physicist.

Not even mentioning the efficiencies of larger countries.

As divided as this country is, at least we are one.

Personality certainly comes into play when screening applicants.

Not really. A top tier school will grab the same amount of attention as someone who went to a state school but has hands-on experience. The same goes for internships. I'd rather have the guy with a 3.0 who is taking classes and working as waiter at nights than someone with a 3.6 who has done nothing but gone to class from the same school. Waiting tables may not be applicable to the job they're applying, but it gives you some insight into their ability to manage a strenuous schedule along with being able to prioritize.
