Bulldoze the Business Schools?

Martin Parker from the University of Bristol suggests that if we want a co-operative economy, then business education needs to change.

Virtually every university in the UK has a business school, and they collectively teach around 1 in 7 university students. It’s a gigantic and very profitable industry, and one that has grown as state funding of universities has declined. But these are not neutral purveyors of teaching and research about how to organise, because the b-school sells a very particular form of knowledge. It teaches about capitalism, and largely ignores any alternatives.
