Political analyst Tamer Qarmout says university protests across the US could have a broad impact on the economy since the country’s future workforce are the ones criticising companies they may eventually work for.

“These are students of Ivy League universities, elite universities that provide the pipeline of employees for the same companies we’re talking about, the future leader of these companies. So it’s a critical juncture,” Qarmout, assistant professor in public policy at the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies, tells Al Jazeera.

When we see students who stand on principle values on ideas, you cannot buy this with money … it’s hard because this is a value system, you are in conflict with an entire value principle system that this these students present,” he added.
