Terence Kealey Is Breakfast a Dangerous Meal A Conversation with Dr Terence

Kealey occasionally writes pieces for the Daily Telegraph and is the author of several books on the economics of science. He has written about how Margaret Thatcher transformed Britain's universities and schools as Secretary of State for Education and Science from 1970 to 1974, and has suggested that a debate with him in 1985 helped to shape her views on the Nobel Prize and the role of the state in sponsoring science. He cites the economic study of the business of science by Angus Maddison, as well as a survey entitled The Sources of Economic Growth in OECD Countries (2003), which found that between 1971 and 1998 only privately funded research had stimulated economic growth in the world’s 21 leading industrialised countries. However, this theory has been challenged by a study which agree with Kealey's criticism of the linear model but try to support the value of state funding by the production of externalities.

    In February 2010, Kealey proposed the establishment of a new independent university, modeled on American liberal arts colleges, which would concentrate on undergraduate teaching rather than research. It was to be based at the disused Wye College in Kent, owned by Imperial College. The plan was supported by the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference (HMC), whose 243 members include independent schools such as Eton College, Winchester College and St Paul's School, London. Kealey believed that complaints about impersonal teaching and oversized classes at many traditional universities mean there would be strong demand for higher education with staff-student ratios similar to that provided by independent secondary schools.
