Higher faculty salaries causing higher tuition? Not so!

Every once in awhile, I come across an article or a commentary that touches on something I am familiar with, from personal experience.

Such is the case with Harvard  Professor  N. Gregory Mankiw, writing recently in The New York Times.

In addressing the several reasons for higher tuition costs, he cites higher faculty pay as one of them. Certainly Professor Mankiw and adjunct Professor Brown live in different worlds.
