Have you ever looked over a list of Harvard graduates? George Bush got an MBA degree from Harvard Business School, the first President with an MBA. Barack Obama got a law degree there and was the Harvard Law Review’s first black president. At the then President elect Obama’s first press conference, the advisors onstage with him included Larry Summers (President of Harvard until he resigned after “women are unequal” remarks), Robert Reich (former member of the faculty of Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government), former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin (guess where he went to college), and Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm (before overseeing her economically failed state, at Harvard Law School she was editor-in-chief of the Harvard Civil Rights Civil Liberties Law Review). And let’s not forget that the architect of the first bailout, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, also had an MBA from Harvard Business School. Maybe the real long-term solution to America’s economic woes is to put Harvard out of business.
