Fuerte Aumento en la Demanda por Doctorados en Economía

Representatives of Harvard, Stanford, Dartmouth, Yale, and Brown, among other highly selective institutions, said in telephone and e-mail exchanges in recent days that applications for the Class of 2013 had jumped sharply when compared to the previous year’s class. As a result, the percentage of applicants who will receive good news from the eight colleges of the Ivy League (and a few other top schools that send out decision letters this week) is expected to hover at – or near – record lows.
Bill Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions and financial aid at Harvard since 1986, said that the 29,112 applications Harvard received this year represented an all-time high, and a 6-percentage point increase from last year. He said the percentage of applicants admitted would be 7 percent, down from 8 percent a year ago. Dartmouth said that the 18,130 applications it received was the most in its history, too, and that the 12 percent admitted would be its lowest.
Stanford said that the 30,350 applications it received represented a 20 percent increase, and that while it estimated a 7.5-percent admission rate, which would be its lowest, it declined to specify a final figure until later in the week

Estimado Alejandro

esperemos que estos doctorados en economía tengan una visión más amplia de la historia y el desarrollo de los modelos económicos. La historia económica de los últimos 30 años, con absolutismo y prepotencia de ser "verdad", ha llevado al mundo al descalabro. Es algo que se vive y se siente en nuestra América Latina, Asia y Europa..

Por eso debemos hacerle Jaque al Neoliberalismo, sin lugar a dudas el resumidero de las ideas más peligrosas de la economía.
Un gran Saludo
