US universities publish their donation and endowment figures and the sky does not fall in. Australian and New Zealand institutions should be heartened by this and do likewise. Of course, they will need to establish some agreed definitions, but this should not be too hard for institutions that are brimming with expertise. The league tables that will inevitably follow would give credit where due and motivate a few other Vice-Chancellors and Development Directors to lift their game.
PS. In my view, most useful of the US statistics is the level of endowment per student.
