another suggestion…

…it might not hurt if every professor, opinion journalist, and foundation expert, as a condition of career advancement, had to spend a year or two working in a shopping mall, hotel, hospital, or warehouse. Our out-of-touch intelligentsia might learn some lessons that cannot be obtained from books and seminars alone.

…would be having those American professors try to survive for a few months on the average salary of their Russian colleagues. And not those from Skolkovo (you probably know it as Skoltech), but those from other “national research universities”.
