(p.158) Chapter 8 Conclusion
Creating the Market University

Elizabeth Popp Berman

Princeton University Press

The preceding chapters have presented evidence in support of the book's main argument that government decisions were the most important driver of universities' decision to expand their economic role, and that those decisions were made because a new way of thinking became politically important. This concluding chapter reexamines the evidence for that argument and compares the proposed explanation with alternative possibilities. It then takes a step back to consider some broader implications of the story told about the transformation of academic science, both for how we understand the changing role of the market in our society and for how we think about the university today.

Keywords:   academic science, American universities, economic role, market logic, economic policy
