Universities in the depression
Posted in Education by Peter W. Schramm
A few interesting articles from Minding the Campus: Frank J. Macchiarola
reflects briefly on how colleges will be affected by the economic downturn. He packs a lot into two pages, not all of it having to do with money. Insightful. Also Charlotte Allen
considers the financial pain on campuses, while Jim Piereson
explains how it is that college and university presidents are likely to be among those sorely disappointed by the stimulus.

You screwed up the Machiarrola link.
The Machiarrola link is fixed now.
I like Macchiarola's article. It seems to admit that Universities have long ago become waste lands of paralysis and ideological cave dwellings, and despite his reluctance, what will actually "reform" the university is market forces. Hum, perhaps the solution to tenured radicals IS economic!
