Conversation starters: Comments from our readers

"The question for me is what competencies people require as they start work. We have a knowledge-based economy and a key part of that knowledge is being able to innovate and challenge the way things are done, University is supposed to foster that. Perhaps one problem is employers recruiting someone to a first job want conformity (perhaps rightly) not challenge."
Steve2020 on Are universities worth it?



"The economic opportunity, as explored by Patrick Minford and others, is for free trade to reduce food prices. The longer term reallocation of UK resources would expand the economy. But there is a price to pay. The consequential shrinkage of farming would materially alter our rural landscape with profound social and environmental consequences, particularly in uplands."
David Campbell on The fate of British farming lies with the Treasury
