We Don't Need No Education08 Nov 2006
German universities lack the resources of their American rivals. The United States spends 2.6 percent of its gross domestic product on higher education; the Germans, only 1.1 percent.
I guess because Germany would rather spend money on the past (like coal subsidies) than on the future. The closing quote was also cute.
Why didnt Mr. Jacobs give his millions to his own alma mater, the University of Hamburg? They didnt ask.
