This is a great post about a student aid program you may know of or be involved with. You'll recognize in this statement two important concepts from our class,
"...popularity aside, the equity and efficiency of the program are questionable at best."
I feel I must note that there is more than one way to skin a cat. On what other grounds would you cite the work study program as inefficient (not mentioned by the author)? Or, do you think the current system works well and needs no change?
In Economix - a NY Times blog that looks at economics in everyday life there was this post on employment rates for people aged 16-24. While this is a macroeconmic statistic there are many microeconmic implications. What do you expect to happen to college and community college enrollment based on this? What then do you think could happen to tuition costs in the future?
