Higher Education and Economic Growth
Paperback. 182 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.After decades of effortless growth and prosperity, Americas postsecondary institutions of education have come under increasing financial stress and waning public support. In part, this stress reflects a slowdown in the real rate of national economic growth and the loss of federal and state revenues for education generally. It also reflects a trend of state legislatures simply giving higher education an ever lower ranking on the list of funding priorities. Postsecondary educational institutions in the United States will continue to face increasing financial stress and waning public support as critics question the contribution of higher education to economic growth, which historically has been a major rationale for funding. Unless the trends in education financing can be changed, higher edu cation can be expected to stagnate. What, if anything, can be done As a starting point, advocates of higher education need to more fully recognize the important ways in which higher education influences technological change and also is influenced by that change. As demonstrated by the chapters in this book, higher education is not a neutral or passive player in economic growth. This volume addresses topics related to the role of postsecondary education in national economic development within the United States. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this title:
This book addresses topics related to the role of post-secondary education in national economic development within the United States.

Attention is given to the research, teaching and service missions of higher education in stimulating economic growth and development.
