Oxford produces more millionaires than any other UK university

first_imgDespite missing out to Cambridge this year in some national and international university rankings, Oxford has redeemed itself in a study that shows it produces more millionaires than any other institution in the United Kingdom.Research by Elite Traveler magazine and wealth consultancy firm WealthInsight pegged Oxford as the fourth-largest producer of millionaire alumni in the world, behind US institutions Harvard, University of Pennsylvania and Stanford.Cambridge and the University of London also placed inside the top 15 universities worldwide, the former just edging out the latter on the list. The United States dominated the list, with every other spot in the top ten going to universities there.There is some question over the extent to which measures like this can be used as litmus tests for graduate earnings as a whole: the Guardian and Complete University Guide rank Cambridge higher in ‘graduate prospects’ and ‘career after six months’ respectively.Oxford’s wealthy students have made headlines before, with 44.4 per cent of students admitted in 2015 having attended independent schools, suggesting that Oxford may already hold an advantage in wealth accumulation over other universities in Britain.Previous research into billionaire graduates has shown similar results, with nine of the top top ten universities with the most billionaire graduates in the United States, along with Cambridge.A report by the Intergenerational Foundation in July found that the £400,000 lifetime earnings boost often touted as the payoff for tuition fees in the British university system could only be achievable by Oxbridge graduates.The full list of universities ranked by millionaire graduates can be found here.last_img read more

Snowflake Trump and his snowflake enablers can’t handle the truth

first_imgIt would be sweet justice if Trump and right-wing talkers so thoroughly trash the electoral process that it depresses Republican base turnout in Georgia in January. And that just might happen. And then there’s reporting from CNN that key Republicans are tip-toeing around Trump and his aides, hoping the courts will solve their problem for them so they don’t have to have any icky conversations.  GOP leaders are nervously watching President Donald Trump’s erratic handling of an election that’s slipping away from him, delicately urging him and his team to clearly make a specific case about voting impropriety or accept the will of the American public. […]But top Republicans are also treading cautiously around a mercurial president who holds enormous sway with their party’s base, with many unwilling to directly challenge his dubious claims and instead urging him to make his case in greater detail.GOP sources said Friday that the idea is to give Trump and his team a chance to make their case and allow the disputes to work themselves out in the courts, arguing that if the lawsuits fall flat, then Trump will have little choice but to concede the election without their having to confront him.What a bunch of self-serving snowflakes. It’s always self over party and party over country when it comes to Republican lawmakers. Once again, Senate Republicans are gladly watching Trump burn down our democracy in order to keep their stranglehold on power. – Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more
