The Triple Helix homepage http://unesdoc.unesco.org/images/0019/001937/193750e.pdf Republicans believe universities are hotbeds of liberalism and education is overrated (after all, science is a faith, evolution a lie and climate change a conspiracy). Government should "get out of the way" (because they can't do anything right. Look at 8 years under Bush. That proves it.) Business can do it all, just don't tax them and give them money (because they are sitting on trillions in unspent capital). This is why our asses are getting kicked around the world. Especially Asia. They refer to the "Triple Helix" as the "Golden Helix" because they understand such a partnership brings in the dough. We have to get away from this Republican fantasy of economics. They can't even say "supply and demand".
