Speculative Diction: Market Fail – UK attempts at marketisation bring a cascade of trouble [May 7, 2011]

I wrote this post about the ongoing attempts to reconfigure the higher education “sector” in England. This involved a significant increase to the tuition cap, as well as reductions to funding for teaching in some subject areas. I argue that to treat universities like regular products in a market is to ignore some specific institutional and organizational differences that make universities (and students) “act” differently in this context.
