All this is probably true, but it is equally an example of the commodification of education; universities are now degree factories – of course one is impressed by the wealth of talent (which is just as impressed with itself) but… Anyway, Grangegorman could be a great site and shouldn’t be held back by concerns about critical mass in some kind of academic supermarket. Believe it or not, institutions can cooperate rather than be amalgamated into huge agglomerations. US universities will always look good because of vast endowments; does the US make the most beneficial contribution to the world? Discuss. How much university research is actually about the needs of the military/big business?
