Why Does College Cost So Much?

Robert B. Archibald and David H. Feldman

  • The major difference between this book and most others in higher education finance is the aerial view. This aerial view causes the reader to look at other industries as well as higher education.
  • The authors look at higher education as an industry that has to make its way in the economy just as do other industries.
  • Archibald and Feldman's broader view uncovers similar cost behavior in many other industries and causes us to have to find an explanation covering other industries as well as higher education
