Neoliberal US colleges prefer rich foreigners

I came across an article in the Washington Monthly from a few years back as to how many U.S. universities are recruiting rich Chinese and other foreigners who can pay high tuition that middle-class and working-class Americans cannot afford.

This fits the neoliberal philosophy, which measure merit in terms of revenue (in this case, tuition X enrollment) and profit.
