Larry Summers Speaks at ACTA

George Leef

In today’s Pope Center piece, Jane Shaw writes about last week’s ACTA meeting, which featured former Harvard president (and current prof) Larry Summers. He has some interesting thoughts about grade inflation, tenure, and the curriculum. As an economist, Summers is part of the problem (he’s completely absorbed in the Keynesian view that the federal government can and should manage the economy), but with regard to higher education, he sees its problems and speaks his mind forcefully.
