Abandoning the public good: How universities have helped privatize higher education [Book Review]

Journal of Academic Ethics 1 (2):175-179 (2003)
Abstract
In this article we assert that much of the public good associated with teaching and research in higher education is gradually being displaced. This privatization of higher education is reflected in increased licensing of research and in the fragmentation of the traditional general education core. Taxpayer de-funding and institutional substitution are economic consequences of public good displacement.
