Marc Bousquet on the Rise of the Executive Class in Academia

A great piece by Marc Bousquet, author of the blog howtheuniversityworks, in The Chronicle of Higher Education. Bousquet calls out faculty governance for the myth that it has been, and points to the ascent of an executive class in academic culture -- one that sees the need for austerity and LIKES it. Read it here or here. An earlier piece on the politics of austerity can be found here.

UCB Executives cost UCB $3 million by hiring $3,000,000 consultants to do the work of their executive jobs. Another luxury of the senior management of UCB
Nice thing if you can get it at cost to students and classes
