Our system of funding higher education allocates money according to which campuses make old hedge-fund tycoons nostalgic about their first kiss.

Harvard got $1 out of every $30 donated to universities last year. It serves one out of every 3,000 students.

This is why we urgently need tax reform, so our society's priorities aren't set by gilded whims.

And why it's time for Harvard and other universities to issue a "declaration of independence" from donors. No donation should come with any discretion over how the money is spent.
I will discuss this and related things in my acceptance of the @Harvard Rushdie Award next month.
