The article titled, “To Lower College Tuition, Obama Should Focus on Supply and Demand” covers an interesting but simple solution. College tuition has been inflating over the years throughout the nation. President Obama has addressed this issue in some of his speeches at college campuses by threatening schools that if their tuition does not stop increasing, then taxpayer funding will go down. Though this position is likely just political gobbledygook to win support of college students and parents, there is a more practical solution to the issue. The solution involves supply and demand. Demand has grown for a college education. Some explanation of the demand growth can be found in population increases, increased foreign enrollment, and an under par economy with added financial aid. Supply of freshman slots available on campus has not kept up with the growth of demand. This lack of supply results in a shortage, which results in price increases. The solution is to expand the supply of freshman slots on campus. If President Obama or any other politician really wants to stop tuition increases, then they should put pressure on schools to increase the supply of freshman enrollment slots.
