Summary, etc.:
There were 13 million university students in 1960. In 2015, their ranks had swollen to nearly 200 million. Universities are operating in the world's most competitive knowledge economy and they are waging a ferocious battle to attract the brightest minds from around the globe. Higher Education delves into the key, decision-making seats where money and politics intermingle, and reveals the deep cultural divide between a lucrative Anglo-Saxon model of funding and the universal independent European model. We also document the emergence of a new class of over-educated and over-indebted workers. Who really benefits from this heightened competition? Just how much debt should students take on? What is the real price for our societies? Is higher education set to be a big market?.
