Quasi-Markets in U.S. Higher Education: The Humanities and Institutional Revenues
Taylor, Barrett J.; Cantwell, Brendan; Slaughter, Sheila
Journal of Higher Education, v84 n5 p675-707 Sep-Oct 2013
We conceptualize colleges and universities as embedded in quasi-markets, meaning competitive sites created by policy, that disfavor the humanities. We therefore posit that increased revenues from a quasi-market to predict institutional de-emphasis of the humanities. Results indicate that private colleges and universities follow this pattern while public institutions do not.
