Book - 2004
Rate this:
Economist Richard Vedder examines the causes of the college tuition crisis and explores ways to reverse this alarming trend.

Book News
Vedder (an Ohio U. economics professor and American Enterprise Institute adjunct scholar) applies the strictures of American Enterprise Institute market orthodoxy to the economics of higher education, finding "inefficiencies" to be caused by government support for universities, financial aid, scholarships, and lack of student/consumer "price sensitivity." For Vedder, the "ultimate reform" would be the privatization of higher education, but he also calls for a number of other changes including performance-based scholarships/vouchers and the separation of research from education.
