Abstract

In recent years, college students, professors, and legislators from around the country have increasingly questioned the pricing practices of college textbook publishers. Many college students today have yearly textbook bills of $800–$900. The college textbook industry makes a good case study of economic principles. But is there something that can be done? Two economists present the problems and a few solutions.
