Presentation of Ph.D. Alum's Book: Why Does College Cost So Much?

13 April 2011 12:00AM

On Friday, April 15th, a celebration of the launch of the new book by Duke Ph.D. alum David H. Feldman and co-author Robert B. Archibald will be held in Room 113 in the Social Sciences Building. 

In their book "Why Does College Cost So Much?" the economists argue that a technological trio of broad economic forces has come together in the last thirty years to cause higher education costs, and costs in many other industries, to rise much more rapidly than the inflation rate.

Feldman teaches in the economics department and in the Public Policy Program at the College of William & Mary. In addition to his work with Robert Archibald on higher education, he writes about the international economy.

Refreshments will be served beginning at 4:10. Feldman will present his ideas and hold a discussion about the book from 4:25 to 5:40 pm. 

Read more details about the new book.
