DeLorean Theory

Discipline: Economics

Theory of academic work described by English political scientist Rodney Barker (1942- ).

Academic and artistic activities are measured according to the amount of funding they attract, rather than by the quality or quantity of their output.

Named after the unsuccessful motor car manufacturer JOHN DeLOREAN (1925- ), who attracted large amounts of money for his plant in Northern Ireland but produced very few cars.
