This paper addresses the problematics of the higher education market in light of the theories and concepts of the emergence and development of capitalism, i.e. as the inevitable offspring of the sprawl of capitalism or, alternatively, as the conjunctural product of globalization. The theoretical existence of pre-capitalistic, pre-global higher education markets, or the absence thereof, are determining factors in tracing continuity vs. discontinuity and in fathoming whether global competition is fuelled by opportunity or by necessity. The author looks at the interactions between regional interests, public regulation and market incentives to make the case that competition between higher education “systems” - as opposed to higher education “institutions” - can be very indicative of the real nature of higher education markets.
