Robert Mugabe -that's right, the Robert Mugabe, the Zimbabwean dictator who as dictator has destroyed the Zimbabwean economy- has a masters degree in economics from the University of London. While some of the theories of neoclassical economists are unrealistic, even they don't teach theories as absurd as stealing the land of its most productive citizens and giving it to incompetent thugs, hyperinflation and price controls. Either Mugabe forgot just about everything they learn, or the University of London didn't examine him properly. At any rate, the status of a University of London masters degree in economics is certainly significantly devalued by this news.
