The paper takes stock of the state of universities in Europe relative to the rest of the world. It presents objective indicators showing that the quality of European universities lags considerably behind those in other countries, especially relative to the United States. The reasons European universities are laggards in the world league are identified. An example of the collapse of a European university system is given, along with the reasons for the collapse.

The above situation is compared to efforts made by the European Union to reverse the downhill trend of higher education in the old continent. Despite many noble efforts, the paper paints a bleak future for European universities. The reasons for this pessimism are sought in the political economy of necessary radical education reforms that are resisted by the voters.
