Employment.png Academic 

Academics generally work either teaching or researching in universities or colleges.

Decreasing independence

“In academic institutions, freedom of thought and expression is in retreat in many areas. Administrators of universities have become top-down representatives of government, rather than defenders of the independence of their institutions. Funding is sought from corporations as well as governments: "market forces" is a euphemism for conformity to corporate demands.”
Ivo Mosley (2013)  [1]

John le CarréBig Pharma is also engaged in the deliberate seduction of the medical profession, country by country, worldwide. It is spending a fortune on influencing, hiring and purchasing academic judgement to a point where, in a few years' time, if Big Pharma continues unchecked on its present happy path, unbought medical opinion will be hard to find.”John le Carré
Dan Kovalik“I make $3,000 for my 3-credit course, sometimes teaching over 50 students in my class at one time. In turn, these students pay between $36,000 and $46,000 in tuition a year, depending on their state residency. Averaging this out to $40,000 a year on tuition, and assuming students take around 30 credits a year, I figure out that for my class of 50, the school brings in a total of $100,000 and gives me $3,000 of that. In other words, while I make a very meager pay, and absolutely no benefits, the Law School is making a hefty profit - a profit that is sucked up by the growing class of administrators and by the few tenured faculty left. Pretty nice for an allegedly nonprofit institution.”Dan Kovalik2021
