Reason number one
Most Universities are not living up to their potential and are too expensive and not effective as they can be.
Reason number two
The benefit to a global of proprietary knowledge creation is no longer supported by the expense of supporting it. Imagine what happens to overhead expense if the research lab becomes a profit center - granting degrees - instead of a cost center.
The third reason is most important.
The world needs the knowledge being created at the research labs in real time, not in corporate time.
