Economics and Higher Education

Daniel S. Hamermesh at UT-Austin writes about the economic value of a college degree. On his blog at NCTE, Paul Bodmer comments that
He is an economist, so he gives economics answers. And that is good, particularly from my point of view. The quick answer to the first question is that the payoff is better for students and the public now than in the 1970’s.
This strikes me as good starting place to take a broad look at college education.
