Étudiants, l’avenir à crédit

In the mid-1960s some 13 million youth across the globe were enrolled in higher education. In 2015, there were 200 million. In 15 years, there will be 400 million. An enormous consumer market is forming. Around the world, the transmission of knowledge is being commodified. Young people are taking on debt in the pursuit of an education. From Shanghai to New York, Paris to Berlin, universities are becoming gigantic corporations under pressure from global competition… But at what cost… And who stands to gain?
