NPR considers Harvard's building boom & financial bust

Linda Wertheimer, host of NPR's Morning Edition, interviews Vanity Fair's Nina Munk, author of Rich Harvard, Poor Harvard. Munk highlights Harvard's building spree as a primary cause of its financial problems - from 2000-2008 Harvard built 6.2 million square feet of new buildings at a cost more than $4 billion (not sure if that includes the partially-built Science Complex).
