How To Survive in Postindustrial Environments: Adam Smith's Advice for Today's Colleges and Universities.
Ortmann, Andreas
Journal of Higher Education, v68 n5 p483-501 Sep-Oct 1997
Adam Smith's discussion of the payment modes of teachers and resulting consequences for the quality of teaching and process of curricular innovation are reviewed through the conceptual lens of modern agency theory. Smith's analysis of higher education in his day (eighteenth century) sheds light on faculty incentive and assessment problems that currently afflict higher education, and provides important policy prescriptions.
