Notes:

"A college education has become less reachable to a broad swathe of the American public at the same time that the market demand for highly educated people has soared. This affordability problem has deep roots. The authors explore how cost pressure, the changing wage structure of the U.S. economy, and the complexity of financial-aid policy combine to reduce access to higher education below what we need in the twenty-first century labor market."
