Quasi-Markets in U.S. Higher Education: The Humanities and Institutional Revenues
Abstract

Abstract:

We conceptualize colleges and universities as embedded in quasi-markets, meaning competitive sites created by policy, that disfavor the humanities. We therefore posit that increased revenues from a quasi-market predict institutional de-emphasis of the humanities. Results indicate that private colleges and universities follow this pattern while public institutions do not.
