University investments and economic growth

In the second of my reflections on the University of Edinburgh’s investment policy consultation, I raise some critical questions about why a university should affirm, as ours does, a commitment to promoting economic growth.  I suggest that there could be aspects of irresponsibility at a macro level in the global economy that are bound up with the growth imperative; and if so, I ask, should a responsible microeconomic actor not do what’s possible to challenge rather than affirm them?  Read the blog.  (Or look at the longer paper that the blog was abridged from.)
