American universities serve as economic engines, performing the scientific research that can create new industries, drive economic growth, and keep the United States globally competitive. This title sheds light on how knowledge and politics intersect to structure the economy.



The policy decisions shaped by this change were diverse, influencing arenas from patents and taxes to pensions and science policy, and encouraged practices that would focus specifically on the economic value of academic science. By the early 1980s, universities were nurturing the rapid growth of areas such as biotech entrepreneurship, patenting, and university-industry research centers. Contributing to debates about the relationship between universities, government, and industry, "Creating the Market University" sheds light on how knowledge and politics intersect to structure the economy.
