From Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski

Sir: If recent developments have taught us anything, it is that good teaching is "good" largely to the extent that it is informed directly by scholarly research, and that the notorious short-termism of British businesses and financial institutions is inherently hostile to serious backing by business for anything other than minor applied research projects.

Yours sincerely,

Ferdinand von Prondzynski

Professor of Law
