Public Record - The Scholar and the State (Part 2 of 2)


U.S. presidential candidate and consumer advocate Ralph Nader speaks about keeping Canadian universities free of corporate interests at the conference “The Scholar and the State,” organized by the Graduate Students’ Association at the University of Ottawa, in Ottawa, Ont., February 20, 2004.

Mr. Nader discusses the marginalization of certain academics in universities, the belief that everything can be monetized, the Chicago School of economics, normative research in the university, the purposes of a public university, the commercialization of the university, and related concerns. Gilles Patry (Rector, University of Ottawa) introduces Mr. Nader. Mr. Nader, David Noble (professor at York University), and Leonard Minsky (National Coalition for Universities in the Public Interest) answer questions from audience members.
