Summary This volume contains a collection of papers by economists, which examine the various strategies for cutting costs and improving productivity in higher education in the United States. The dramatic increase in the cost of attending most colleges and universities in recent years has led to increasing concerns regarding college affordability. In addition, with nearly 35 per cent of full-time college students failing to receive a bachelor's degree within six years of enrolling in an institution of higher education, the productivity of colleges and universities has also been called into question.
