Boston Business Journal Report: Harvard's Endowment Chief Stepping Down

Harvard University's endowment chief is stepping down.

At the end of the day, the numbers are the numbers and even though Harvard has the biggest endowment, it does trail many of its Ivy League peers, in fact, all of its Ivy League peers over five years as well as some of the colleges in Massachusetts," he said.

Douglas also talks about property taxes - and if towns and cities are primed for a tax override.
