And here’s this weeks correlation – Because it’s all Wonkhe staff on the podcast this week I thought we’d get technical. OfS releases a measure of how well paid a head of provider is compared to the rest of their staff as a ratio. What I’m asking is whether there is a link between this and how quickly the provider would run out of money if if stopped getting any – the number of days of net liquidity.

So – do providers that could go under in the blink of an eye pay their VCs and principals loads more than the rest of the staff? Does it correlate?
