Higher Education Subsidies: Why All College Students Pay Less for Their Education Than It Costs.
Winston, Gordon C.
Connection: New England's Journal of Higher Education and Economic Development, v13 n1 p13-15 Spr 1998
Colleges and universities sell education at a price that is far less than the cost of its production. Student subsidies are a permanent feature of higher education economics, representing a large part of total costs. Cross-subsidizing, with one activity supporting another, is common, and even students who pay full costs and do not get direct government assistance are subsidized. (MSE)
