Harvard’s Professional Pipelines
In previous articles, I have called on Harvard to spend its money more freely to improve the quality of education and incentivize prosocial outcomes. I even suggested that the University should sometimes act as a force for societal redistribution, accumulating wealth from the rich and dispersing it to those less well-off.
We all know Harvard students are obsessed with prestige. From final clubs to competitive comps, we seem to gravitate toward arbitrary standards of success in order to preserve the luster of our status as Harvard students.
