The art of the gouge/model of the market

“Excessive on its face, such largesse at the top is all the more appalling for the widespread poverty and debt enabling it.”
- “The art of the gouge: How NYU squeezes billions from our students—and where that money goes”
“The actual scandal of ‘The Art of the Gouge’ is that even if NYU is a particularly egregious offender of basic decency and honesty, most of the report’s indictments could apply equally to nearly any American university.”
- “‘The Art of the Gouge’: NYU as a Model for Predatory Higher Education”
“[N]eoliberal rationality disseminates the model of the market to all domains and activities...and configures human beings exhaustively as market actors, always, only, and everywhere as homo oeconomicus.”
- Wendy Brown, Undoing the Demos
