Sub: Conflicts of Interest in Academic Research and Economic Doom [Revised]
Dear Honorable Senators,
Kudos for your efforts to nab the serious conflicts of interest in university research and sponsors for such research! This also bears reference to my memo written to the US Congress on various themes, excerpted from my paper, “Utility of Wealth, Policy and Governance” that prompted worthy Congressional actions about tuition policies of elite and richly endowed universities. This had ultimately led to a waiver of tuition at the elite universities for the American middleclass.
