Chicago has more postgraduates than undergraduates, underlining its focus on advanced academic exploration. The Chicago School of economics, embracing Milton Friedman's pro-market philosophy, developed here, as did the first self-sustained manmade nuclear reaction. Founded in 1890 with a grant by John D. Rockefeller, Chicago now operates 125 research institutes and centres.
