Richard J. Joseph's new book, which closes the gap between the abundance of the talent of American higher education and the immense foreign demand of you: the great abyss in global education (Oxford University Press) is not his book Standard on International Education. Joseph bases his arguments about "the world of finance", although he believes that the approach will produce other desirable results. Joseph was previously president of Babson Global, a total property subsidiary of Babson College who works to collaborate mainly with educational institutions around the world to design curricula and improve the educational delivery capacity that extends the scope of Babson College. He has also been the rector of the Bryant University and the Hult International Business School.
Joseph answered questions about his new book by email.
