"'Inequality' represents one of a half-dozen books dealing with the subject that Harvard University Press alone has published on the subject since it introduced the translation of Professor Piketty's opus to the United States market last year." — From Jonathan Knee's New York Times book review of Inequality: What Can Be Done by Anthony B. Atkinson.
Harvard announced today that alumnus John A. Paulson, M.B.A. '80, founder and president of Paulson & Co., has made the largest gift in the University's history, a $400 million endowment to support the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). To honor his generosity, the School will be renamed the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences...He founded Paulson & Co. in 1994 with $2 million and one employee. Today the company, which specializes in alternative investments, manages more than $19 billion and employs more than 125 people worldwide. — From the official Harvard University Gazette article about the donation.
It looks as though, notwithstanding the university's publishing program, Harvard's fundraisers are doing their best to accelerate the inequality between it and poorer universities. Without the inequality that the university-published books decry, how would Harvard ever raise this kind of money?
