William F. Buckley’s God Man at Yale "concludes that the values inculcated at Yale ‘are agnostic as to religion, interventionist and Keynesian as to economics, and collectivist as applied to the relation of the individual to society and government A like case could be made out against the economics teaching in many other leading American universities today" (Hazlitt, The Free Man’s Library, 48).
