Market Metaphors, Neo-liberalism and the Construction of Academic Landscapes in Aotearora/New Zealand.
Roche, Michael M.; Berg, Lawrence D.
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v21 n2 p147-61 Jul 1997
Criticizes New Zealand's adoption of market-oriented higher education--universities as "knowledge businesses" and students as "consumers." Argues that the competitive capitalist economic model advocated by the state replicates societal structural inequalities and is wholly inappropriate for a university. Recommends a return to the ideals of collegiality. (MJP)
