"For-Profit Higher Education: Godzilla or Chicken Little?" - This article sets out to answer some tough questions such as, who will be the likely clientele of the newly accredited for-profit schools? These schools, which are characterized by lower costs and differentiated products, offer real competition to traditional private colleges and will force them to clarify their missions and specify exactly what kind of education they are offering. The result will be lower costs and the elimination of inefficient schools. This article is not available online.
