Looks good.

Myself, I'm still wondering to what extent there is a crisis, and for 
whom, and whose language it is we're adopting when we speak of their 
being a 'global economic crisis'. (After all, it could be argued that in 
the UK, many of those who are reasonably well paid, didn't loose their 
jobs, and don't depend on income from investments, are actually better 
off financially, since their mortgage rates have declined dramatically.)

However, I agree with the suggestions made so far. It'd be good to 
include a little more about the current struggles around the  
university. And possibly about some of the other experiments with new 
and alternative models for the university that are being conducted, many 
of them online. They may not always be that interesting politically, but 
they do seem indicative of a wider desire for change.
