0422 – Anti-Americanism John Waterbury – Loving and Hating America: Hate Your Policies, Love Your Institutions Today’s crisis is one of interests. The various sides in the crisis do not understand the “other’s” interests or politics. America is admired for its transparent politics, independent judiciary, adherence to due process, encouragement of entrepreneurship, linking of rewards to performance, provision of economic opportunity, rapid social mobility, and system of higher education. In the ME, most institutions of higher education are overcrowded and underproductive. They are overwhelmed by the rapid growth of school-age populations and undermined by sluggish economic growth, which has led to a collapse of public finance, badly strained budgets, and steadily eroding educational standards. The impressive increases in enrollments have come at the price of declining standards. There is a great cut-off between secondary schools and the university.
