    'It's a waste of taxpayer money': New Jersey public university faces critics after ordering $219,000 Bond-villain conference table
    Kean University commissioned its high-tech oak and glass panel conference table from a Shanghai firm. President Dawood Farahi said he saved money by getting the office furniture made in China and called the criticism 'small-minded.'

    It's a conference table fit for a Bond villain.

    The $219,000 oak and glass panel conference table is 22-feet wide, seats 23 and includes data ports, microphones, Bose speakers and an illuminated map of the world.

    And this massive statement of largesse — built in Shanghai for 10 times more money than similar office furniture — is the property a New Jersey public university.
