What happened about 1980 was that states started to cut their funding of higher education, & so universities looked for other ways of making money, & so they concentrated on raising funds & doing research, & especially research funded by corporations & the federal government. And so, basically now at a lot of universities, instruction only represents about ten percent of the budget, and so its a minor aspect of the universities. And most people dont know that, that universities, in some ways, are just kind of fronts for investment banks and investments...."
