Truth to power

Posted on

I have a chance to, as Quakers would put it, speak truth to power at the Treasury Committee of the House of Commons this morning.

My friend Dr Atul Shah does so in a different way today, with an article in the Guardian Higher Education under the title

Q: What did universities learn from the financial crash? A: Nothing

This is well worth reading. What Atul makes clear is that there is a hunger amongst students for a real understanding of what the power of finance does in our society.

I'll remember that when teaching this afternoon.
