Chomsky on academic freedom and the corporatization of universities

July 5, 2012

This video is a 90 – minute talk (with Q&A) by Noam Chomsky on the theme of academic freedom and the corporatization of universities.

The lecture takes place in April of this year and focuses on the increasing influence that private capital has on curriculum in universities, the privatization of education and the daunting reality for university students and the mounting debt that most of them are incurring.

Chomsky begins the lecture by talking about the efforts of the capitalist class to respond to the challenges to capitalism in the 1960s and the ongoing propaganda campaign to defend the so-called “free market.”
