THE DECLINE AND FALL OF HARVARD UNIVERSITY? A law school prof from the People's Republic of Cambridge writes that
Harvard is the General Motors of American universities: rich, bureaucratic, and confident--a deadly combination. Fifty years from now, Larry Summers's resignation will be known as the moment when Harvard embraced GM's fate. From now on, the decline will likely be steep.
Even though us New Haven alums tend to enjoy predictions of Harvard's demise, I don't buy it for a second. Say what you want about the navel-gazing of the left-wing faculty (and I do). None of it can take away from Harvard's achievements in medicine, science, law and business.

And, of course, the power of branding.

Harvard is still Hahvud and will have to fall far and for a long time before having it as a resume line stops being something special.
