Vocal Point-Dr. Gary Wolfram

Many today—including millennials—are clamoring for “free tuition.” Many Democratic presidential hopefuls, such as self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders, are calling for free college tuition for all. But Dr. Gary Wolfram, an economics professor at Hillsdale College, says while this may sound good, in reality, it has some harmful long-term effects. In a recent piece for Fox Business, Wolfram penned, “Free college tuition is likely to result in a misallocation of resources, including the time of young people in the country, and have little if no positive effect on the employability and income of the poor.” Dr. Gary Wolfram joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss “free” college tuition and what’s wrong with it. www.hillsdale.edu
