With college incomes dropping, millions in America carry the burden of unpayable student debts. Only university administrators can effectively control this untenable situation. In this talk, Professor Samuel suggests that college tuition should be linked to the expected income earned from a major. Prospective students need this information to make informed decisions. Income based tuition will also make the humanities as economically attractive as technical fields of study. 

Sajay Samuel has taught Management Accounting and related subjects to undergraduates, MBA's and Executives over assignments that included stints at Bucknell University and the University of Connecticut. His research published in scholarly journals aims at clarifying some of the foundational assumptions of management thought and practice. Parallel to these researches on management and accounting he also studies political philosophy and history. He has presented the early fruits of this work in France, Italy, Germany and England. Professor Samuel is working on the political significance of administrative agencies (e.g, SEC) and professional associations (e.g, Accounting Profession) in liberal democratic polities.
