Campus Free Speech as Product Differentiation: The University of Chicago versus Yale

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 7:36
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

My son is an outspoken young man who will apply to college soon.  He is well aware that the University of Chicago is a fierce defender of free speech and intellectual debate while Yale and many of the top University of California campuses are not.

Many economists are interested in “product differentiation”.  Given how similar are the major universities, will universities that offer the chance for true freedom of debate and expression be rewarded by attracting a select sample of students? Will their interactions at these few campuses have  a “treatment effect” that benefits them, society and the campus?   Will some universities begin to compete to be centers of free speech?
