Many people believe that a college or university is just like a business. Students pay a fee (tuition) for a service (education). However, there are components than just these things to take into consideration and things are not always as clear and simple as some believe. There are several organizational models from which businesses and schools can operate, but the nature of academic governance is a unique one, and a school cannot always be treated as a traditional business for many reasons. One of the reasons the comparison between a university and a business is a complex one, and one of much debate, is that the educational world is distinctive unto itself.
The new aristocracy was made up for the most part of bureaucrats, scientists… and professional politicians. These people, whose origins lay in the salaried middle class… had been shaped and brought together by the barren world of monopoly industry and centralized government. (Orwell, 281) Aristocracy, the rule of a few well suited individuals, is a historically important and controversial form of government. As a sort of middle ground between monarchy and democracy, aristocracy is a very unique way of ruling. As opposed to one person being the undisputed king or ruler, the responsibility is split up in a group of educated individuals.
The problem to be investigated in R. Edward Freeman’s “A Stakeholder Theory of the Modern Corporation” is the intrinsic relationship of a stakeholder and a stockholder to that of an artificial corporate entity and their resulting influences. As such, what problems did Freeman see with government regulations controlling corporate operations? Prior to this century, there were few constraints or roadblocks in the daily affairs of a corporation. Managerial capitalism was used as a large, wielding bat that could beat down, without discourse, any opponents that created obstruction to profit for the stockholders of the corporation. Suppliers and customers were managed in any fitting style for lack of common guidelines.

The influence of stakeholders to a business is the cardinal push behind their operation. Firms strive to be able to achieve stakeholder interests to able to operate in a safe and accepted environment. Corporate social responsibility abbreviated as (CSR) is defined as the company’s initiatives showing its responsibility to its stakeholders. These initiatives can be on the environment, customers, staff, community, shareholders and the general public (Velasquez, 2012). Many researchers supporting this assertion argue that the firms end up making long-term gains to themselves by encouraging this perspective.
Today there are many competing goals that influence the missions and funding philosophies tied to public universities. In chapter one of How to succeed in school without really learning: the credentials race in American education, David Labaree (1997) identifies three defining goals of education. In order to provide context to how the three goals can be in competition or alignment, two pieces will be used to analyze the goals. The first is an article regarding the role of the government in financing higher education (Baum, 1995) and the second document, The Arizona higher education enterprise: Strategic realignment 2010 forward, is the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR) strategic plan (ABOR, 2010). The Defining Goals of Education The three goals of education are: social efficiency, social mobility, and democratic equality (Labaree, 1997).
Without this perception the individual has a false idea of what their abilities are, leading to vastly different levels of actual success compared to predicted success. Whilst the measurement of success at work and university is a subjective concept, the way in which it is achieved is largely not. The manner in which interpersonal and intra-personal perceptions influence individual success is evident. Interpersonal perceptions allow for a smooth integration into the team environment of a workplace as well as the establishment of friendship support networks at university. Whilst intra-personal perceptions enable the individual to accurately gauge their own thoughts, abilities and knowledge in the workplace and at university.

In other words, there is a government shutdown because no compromise is reached. Making it hard to form coalitions. Coalitions under presidentialism are often very rare due to the fact that there is no incentive to do so (J. Cheibub 1). Lastly, the government under presidential systems are decentralized, the President directly responds to proposals in the legislative branch that influences the government's ability to create policy (J. Cheibub 1). There is very little cooperation in a presidential system compared to a parliamentary one.

Yet its effectiveness is still influenced by the constitutional devices, which they employed to prevent an over-powerful executive. The president is the victim of a deep paradox within the American political psyche - a craving for clear leadership but a distrust of those who exercise power. The changing role of the USA also presents the president with another paradox - while it is now the worlds only super power it is no longer the worlds economic colossus: Japan, Europe and in the future China are major rivals.
