"It's as if Harvard took MIT's current $12.5 billion endowment and set a match to it."

Amazing illustration.

Not that long ago a number of us mentioned on this board there are a variety of well known low cost index funds that historically beat the performance of Ivy endowments and hedge funds as well. Just ask Warren Buffet or John Bogle. Guess someone in Cambridge finally realized that. If they made the change earlier perhaps Harvard students would be able to have hot breakfasts again. Maybe the boosters who are enhancing certain coaches salaries e.g. Amaker should also endow some funds to respond to Harvard students'protein needs as described in the link below. Brings to mind Oliver Twist at the gruel line saying "Please Sir I want more.."
