"Just at present, almost all university activities in Britain are 
described in the language of accountancy. So even an activity such as 
philosophy is described [...] in terms of deliverability, production 
targets, output monitoring, measuring, auditing, appraisal, 
value-added, point-of-service strategic resource allocations, and 
other horrors[...] grotesquely unfitted to describing attempts to 
understand the world."
[Simon Blackburn in "Truth: A Guide for the Perplexed".]
