Chronicle of Higher Education publishes piece on college earnings by Trostel

Philip Trostel, a professor of economics and public policy at the University of Maine, wrote an article for The Chronicle of Higher Education titled, “Beyond the college earnings premium. Way beyond.” “Despite the rising cost, a college education is still practically a windfall-profit investment for most graduates,” Trostel wrote. “In 2012, Americans with bachelor’s degrees and without advanced degrees earned over $32,000 a year more than high school graduates who never attended college.”
