An op-ed by Michael Czinkota, associate professor: “I have returned from my summer trip to Europe and report that conditions have changed. In England stood out for the views by its educated experts on money and markets. They don’t know and don’t care. New announcements and shifts are just shrugged off or, worse yet, ignored.

For decades, higher education leaders have been caught up in a mania for “diversity.” To prove their dedication to progressivism, they have made it a top priority to hire more and more women and minorities.
