Financing Higher Education: The Public Investment.
Hoy, John C., Ed.; Bernstein, Melvin H., Ed.
The relationship between public investment in higher education and a strong regional economy is examined in eight chapters, with a focus on New England. In "Underfunding and Overtaxing in New England," Melvin H. Bernstein considers the business climate and excessive tax burdens in New England. "Higher Education: Investment or Expense?" (Michael S. McPherson) discusses the value of basic research and education and training, and implications for the New England region. In "Finance and the Future of Higher Education in New England," Patricia Flynn Pannell examines federal, state, and local support of higher education in New England, institutional financing, and policy implications. Four major problems in New England higher education are described in "The System of Higher Education in New England" by Jean Mayer and Robert W. Eisenmenger, while the importance of higher education to the economy is considered in "Higher Education in the Gross Domestic Product of New England States" by Ward S. Curran. The remaining three chapters are as follows: "Cooperation for What?" (Anthony P. Carnevale); "Tax Policy: Some Issues for Higher Education" (JoAnn Moody); and "The Absence of National Policy" (John C. Hoy). The following report is appended: "A Threat to Excellence: The Report of the Commission on Higher Education and the Economy of New England." (SW)
