CHART: College Textbook Inflation.
UPDATE: Reader Dave Ivers emails:
I’ve almost quit using my favorite textbooks due to price increases. Most of our students come from mid to low income families. The texts I assigned 10 years ago are now 4 times as expensive, and there’s hardly any difference in content or physical product. I’m moving to online stuff. A friend is writing his own ‘text’ and putting on the internal web at his school, a chapter at a time.
Yes, I’m working toward something similar in Constitutional Law.
