<i>Going Broke by Degree</i>: A Review Essay

Other Titles
Abstract

In this review, the author posits that Richard Vedder’s book Going Broke By Degree: Why College Costs Too Much, while providing a good diagnosis of the problems and issues facing public higher education, suffers from a heavily political bent which skews Vedder’s policy conclusions away from empirical evidence and toward ideology. The author’s essay attempts to clarify for the reader which of Vedder’s statements are based on philosophy and which are based on fact.
