A Higher Education Bubble?

The Enterprise Blog has another great chart.  This one targets higher education:

Any college student in the past 20 years or parent of a college student in the past 20 years, could have prepared this chart from personal experience.  It's a real issue.

It is, indeed, an issue deserving of great national concern. 

In fact, the blog goes so far as to call higher education prices to be the next "bubble" issue in the U.S.  The blog reads, "Like the U.S. housing bubble and all previous bubbles in history, the dramatic increases in college tuition in relation to both overall prices and home prices illustrated in the chart above makes it seem inevitable that the higher education bubble will have to someday burst."

See the full blog piece for the whole story.
