I think they should have been treated like anyone else stealing a $500 pair of sunglasses in China.
the move to tax tuition waivers and scholarships for grad students would be immediately devastating to research universities..
lthough the studies described are dated, Stanford alumni and professors have started companies that had 5.4 million employees and had revenues of $2.7 trillion (in 2014) and MIT alumni ....
Second, the broader issue is, as I said in an earlier post, is how we as a country finance the excellence in higher education that has led to substantial (but very unevenly distributed) economic gain for the country. If we take this steps like these to attack elite institutions (and I agree that with @toooldforschool that this is likely only a first step), we are likely to be weakening the economy in meaningful ways. As a polity, we don't have an appetite for investing for future benefit (education, infrastructure) at the moment, so moves to weaken our great research universities as well as cuts in the federal budget to basic research.....
I prefer democracy and hence do not want to weaken our system of funding excellence in academic research.
