Why Does Academia Have A Bias Against Bitcoin?

Academia is no fan of Bitcoin. The vast majority of professors are hugely biased against it. For example, Professor of Economics Nouriel Roubini of New York University doesn’t even try to hide his intense hatred for Bitcoin. Roubini told Bloomberg that "the Flintstones had a better monetary system than bitcoin" and has repeatedly called it a “bubble” since 2015. When asked to give expert testimony to the U.S. Senate, Roubini called Bitcoin “the mother of all scams'' and smeared all its supporters as “scammers, swindlers, criminals, charlatans, insider whales and carnival barkers.”
