A Dozen Reasons for Ballooning College Costs

The Center for College Affordability and Productivity recently released a new study, authored by Richard Vedder, that pinpoints 12 reasons for soaring college tuition, and asks whether the government is spending too much money on higher education as a whole.
The report, “Over Invested and Over Priced: American Higher Education Today,” focuses on the financial problems besetting higher education institutions and urges government leaders to adopt reforms consistent with free-market principles.
The study questions common conventional wisdom about higher education such as that colleges and universities benefit the economy and that more government spending on higher education lowers tuition.
