Description

In the early ’90s, Hank Rowan gave $100 million to a tiny public university in Glassboro, New Jersey: not Harvard, not Yale, not even to his alma mater, MIT. What was Rowan thinking? And why has it proven so difficult for other philanthropists to follow his lead?

This is hilarious! Nevermind the countless trillions the government STEALS from people and squanders on wasteful spending in public school programs or the military. Come on Mr. Gladwell, if you want social justice, turn your attention to the thieves in government. Oh by the way, most university costs are skyrocketing because government subsidizes schools

aa stonkus very well, Stonkus. The topic is that Stanford spends tens of billions of dollars to attract the smartest people in the world to solve some of the hardest problems in the world. Why is this practice reprehensible? If it so bad for society, then you are welcome to convince as many people as you want to this end, and hopefully, for your sake, the university loses so much funding that they are no longer able to reward people for their hard work and intellect, not to mention their contribution to society. I do not like the fact that Stanford does this, but at least the entire process is voluntary, not compulsory. Fair enough?
