Michael Granof '63 Contributes Op-ed to Chronicle of Higher Education

Topic is Textbook Pricing

Posted November 29, 2004

"Textbooks are overpriced because they are still marketed the old-fashioned way, as if they were the same as trade books. They are not. Other than physical form, the two share little common economic ground. Moreover, the cure is neither tax breaks, nor government-mandated price controls, nor limitations on publishers, but rather a new way of selling textbooks, one that distinguishes between physical form and intellectual content."
