The article comments on the crisis of graduate education in the U.S., which is being viewed as a part of the larger problem of manpower management. Graduate education is not the exclusive property of faculty. Every citizens are all in their own ways consumers of graduate education, and are entitled to inquire into the worth of the product they are buying. Therefore, the problem of graduate education resolves itself into the determination of what mode of manpower management will be most effective in producing and distributing skills at minimum cost in people and resources.
