Williams will never be as transparent as I would like it to be. But perhaps I am just nuts! Yet is it unreasonable to demand that Williams should be at least as transparent as, say, Amherst? Compare the financial reports of Williams and Amherst. Both colleges provide basic financial statements but Amherst does much more. See (pdf) the Descriptive Analysis of Endowment and Other Similar Funds on page 33 and the Statistical Information on page 52 for fascinating details on Amherst.

Why won’t Williams make the same information available to us?
