Default Re: Values Added: The Whirligig of Time (Glenn Loury & Walter Russell Mead)

I was interested by Mead's comment about how a general post-graduate exam could have meritocratic force - replacing the brand imprint of Ivy League schools with pure exam performance.

Since I doubt that all universities will band together to support such a thing as they are banded together in France - is there any role for the private sector here? Imagine a private company whose business model is sort of like the model of credit-score companies - certifying the academic competence of their subjects, regardless of school attendance.

I am not sure what the mix should be of payment from the tested and the potential employers, but it would be nice if it were free to take the test(s) and employers paid to get access to the data.
