Our Universities: The Capital of Confidence
Ninth and last in the series, Follow the money
Universities generate and disseminate confidence - in ideas, people, institutions, and individual attainment – or fail. When they are tuned to perfection, a two way flow of confidence occurs, from without the institutions, inward, and from within the institutions, outward.
The solid ground of mutual confidence is the necessary partnership of government with all of the sectors of our society in the steady quest for economic progress.
