The President and Vice-Chancellor's Annual Guest Lecture 2017
Uses and abuses of economics in the debate on universities
By Martin Wolf CBE, Chief Economics Commentator at the Financial Times
This lecture examined the logic underlying the government’s current higher education bill. It concluded that it relies too heavily on naive economic arguments. Economics has an important role to play in analysing the future of universities, but it must not play a preponderant role.
