The United Kingdom ranks around 22nd among countries in terms of population.So the U.S. does particularly well, and the U.K. also does quite well.But whereas the U.S. is home to 31 of the world's top 100 universities, the U.K. is home to 16, including four of the top 10, according to the reputable QS World University Rankings. Other than the U.S., Australia also stands out: though its economy is half the size of the U.K.'s, it has seven of the world's top 100 universities.Germany, for example, is among the world's 20 most populous and 20 wealthiest countries, and is easily in the top ten in terms of nominal GDP; but its highest-ranked university is 64th in the world, and it has only three institutions in the top 100 .First, if other countries can become more productive and wealthier than the U.K. without excelling in higher learning, is the U.K. failing to capitalize on other key growth drivers?
