What's this? The government actually using its regulatory powers to encourage competition? I almost fell out of my chair.

The price of textbooks and e-books should be much lower than they are. Some sort of incentive to lower pricing would be great... Get in there and investigate, deep!

Oh dear, imagine that. Publishers running to the company they know will find a way to stifle competition. rolleyessmileyanim.gif

We can't have the middle class being able to afford an education which would allow them to compete with the upper class, now can we? wink.gif There is legislation last I heard that is attempting to force students to have to pay a portion of their tuition out of pocket - regardless of the amount of financial aid they qualify for. It sure looks as if someone wants to see education become an elite class privilege again.

Yeah, it still is... The more laws you find out about, the more it's obvious that the rich control everything.

Did you know that you have to earn over $300,000 a year to be LEGALLY allowed to invest in a private business?

If that doesn't blatantly prove that the rich control everything then nothing does.




How about they look into apple price fixing Music while they are at it?

Meanwhile in Europe....the guvmint pays my friend €300 a month to go to university, books are free. What a novel idea: recognizing that an educated populace is a productive populace and stronger economy.
