Synopsis

Charles W. Smith's provocative book, Market Values in American Higher Education argues that current financial problems in higher education are not tied to such things as tenure, sabbaticals, overemphasis on research, and curriculum changes. Rather, they are due to counterproductive and expensive efforts to impose hierarchical corporate managerial structures, slash and burn cost reduction schemes, and costly pursuits of phantom revenue sources-be they highly visible new programs, grants, or even gifts that actually need to be subsidized by the institution.

Charles W. Smith, longtime economic sociologist and onetime academic administrator, is currently professor and chair of sociology at Queens College, CUNY. He is the author of numerous books and articles including Success and Survival on Wall Street: Understanding the Mind of the Market and Auctions: The Social Construction of Value.
