  1. I suppose that the University of Haifa hasn’t escaped the world wide corporatisation of universities. This trend is characterised among other things by the increasing power and presence of a generally very expensive administration (with dreamlike salaries at the top) and an increasingly powerless faculty, by ever larger student fees and, generally, by the university pursuing money rather than purely scholarly aims. The “commodification” of those aims has now become glaringly obvious.

    This article in Dissent gives a neat summing up: https://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/the-corporatization-of-higher-education

    In this set up the type of guy you are talking about is often successful. He looks and sounds, uh, quite unacademic in the traditional sense, but he is apparently good in attracting money for the University. So he is likely to get away with quite a lot.
