The authors show that out of the Top 10 Universities globally, 4 are in the UK with paltry endowments in comparison to US cohort (Cambridge is £9bn, Oxford is £5bn, Imperial is £550m) ... Compared to Stanford at $63bn, Harvard at $53bn and MIT at $42bn! ....My son graduated this week from UCL (No. 9 globally) and i recently found out their endowment is less than £150m....perhaps money is less correlated than we think with great research, great teachers and the best education?

Our ‚Äúcommon heritage‚ÄĚ. Never forget that you belong to an economy that allows wealthy people, enjoying first class freedoms, to invest in companies that repeatedly misuse our science, our tax dollars, our highway and healthcare systems, even our sunlight, water, plants, and soils while exploiting our labor, too, all of this only to help sweeten, for instance, a highly addictive drug and package it the into a small, stylish container, then give it a cool name like ‚ÄúTyson 2.0 Heavy Weight 7000 Puff disposable vape pod system from Mike Tyson‚ÄĚ to better guarantee their tobacco industry a new generation of young people dependent on useless products, smoking nicotine every day for the rest of their shortened, lung-crusted lives.
