If the information is so easily transmitted and students don't need their hand held, why aren't all of these classes being taught electronically online? Why even bother with a classroom at all besides for testing purposes? It's because government is there to subsidize the increased cost and prevent the natural evolution of education.
It's not a product, it's a service. Supply and demand most certainly does effect the cost of services.Anyway, our nation education is not some kind a product that someone is trying to sell. The law of supply & demand isn't representative, and the main reason is that the people that are "buying" the "product", are the co-owners of the said product.
It's simple. To provide a service you need the facilities (schools, gyms, labs, etc..) staff (teachers, administrators, janitors, etc..) and a plan to put those assets into functional operation.
All of this costs money and none of these things are in infinite supply. So the more teachers you need to hire, the more it costs you; and guess what.. teachers are not exactly an easy position to fill. There aren't enough of them. Which means the price to hire them also goes up.
All of those costs rise as more students come in. And there's also less space for them all. So prices go UP to compensate. There's no where else for them to go.
In Quebec, students have been enjoying a comfortable, very small tuition fee compared to the rest of Canada, kept artificially low by the government. Now, for once, the government decides to stop forking over tax payer money to subsidize what should be paid for by the students or parents, and because of that the students take to streets and start a wild dangerous violent tantrum.

can you read? That's a really ignorant conclusion you've drawn from what I said. I see much further outside the box of modern day education institutes.
I was only pointing out a fundamental flaw in logic, in this thread.
I also just ate a pot brownie so this thread is gonna be amazing in like 45 minutes.
Unless we're talking about capitalism in more of a barter society?
Also aren't there hundred of thousands of people across the globe protesting the banks?

Think about it.. if banks really had to compete for your money knowing the government wouldnt bail their dumb asses out.. do you think some low IQ retard fucking janitor would get a home loan for a house he could never afford? HELL FUCKING NO.
If we do; you call it socialism.
If we don't; we're right back here. I assume you acknowledge there's a problem.
No matter what a (I want to say capitalist but it may happen more than just that type) economy starts off as, to me it will always end up cheap workers, cheap quality and cheap product. That seems very flawed to me.

The free market is beautiful if you let it be.. capital migrates to where its needed.. labor migrates to where its most rewarded for its effort.
Monopolies simply cannot exist.. because no matter how epic your product or manufacturing process is.. someone will come along and improve upon it.
EVERY SINGLE TIME a monoploy has cropped up.. it was the direct result of government intervention.
