The audience of University Challenge has been mesmerised by the extent of the knowledge displayed by a Canadian entrant; and as the latest round of the quiz comes to its finale he is expected to shine most brightly. This all-time superstar of the show has been reported as expressing the intention to return to Canada, rather than pursue his former plan to study for a PhD in Economics. The reason he gave is that, instead of being allowed to get on with his own project, after finishing a Masters programme, he would have to submit to more courses [for which read, more indoctrination by the Econocracy] as part of the PhD requirement.He has enough knowledge and wisdom to recognise that this would be both a waste of his time and a challenge to his common sense.
Good luck to him in whatever alternative career he adopts!
