Levin, said in an interview with The Guardian, a British newspaper. But Mr. Levin, who delivered a speech on Monday at the Royal Society on 'The Rise of Asia's Universities,' told The Guardian that he does not consider the rise of Asian universities as a threat. 'Competition in education is a positive sum game,' he said. 'Increasing the quality of education around the world translates into better informed and more productive citizens.'"
