The 1988-9 AAI Chairman's Address: Prosperity Patronage and Power

Volume 8.2   1989

SPENCER, IAN

 

This paper, an abridged version of the Chairman's Address, challenges the pressures on higher education for profitability and income generation, as being inherently counterproductive in terms of maintaining choice and student opportunity and support. The market economy and privatisation, it contests, are inappropriate in a non-profit-making enterprise such as higher education.
