9. It's not just education, it's that they're world class research centers
They are where the scientists in medicine, science, astornomy, mathematics and literature learn their trades. Universities get billions of dollars in grants and pay graduate students to do major research. When they get their doctorates they're ready to lead in all and any of the disciplines.

Most people don't even think about the fact that Universities are where scientists get their PhDs and where they specialize in some aspect of science.
