Tales of Capitalism: Have A Prof Write Your Paper
It's difficult to believe that it's not a satire, but there's now a website, Unemployed Professors.com that offers to have graduate students and professors bid to write everything from a response paper to a dissertation. Their rationale is that the contemporary system of higher education is not only "corrupt" but that "professors can only stay in business if they force students to write essays, within their disciplines, that will do nothing to contribute to their own education or edification."
This particular professor would be perfectly happy to write a neo-Marxist analysis of the website itself but not without the benefits of collective bargaining to establish a fair return on his labor.
