Interview with Glenn Reynolds on the Higher Education Bubble

A Bubble in Higher Education starts with:

There was a time in our nation’s history when college was reserved for a privileged and well-heeled few. And today many worry that those days may be returning, given the spiraling cost of tuition.

According to the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, average U.S. college tuition and fees rose by an astonishing 439 percent between 1982 and 2007 — more than four times as much as the inflation rate for that period (106 percent), and about three times the increase in median family income (147 percent).

Bruce Wright then goes on to interview Glenn Reynolds aka Instapundit.
