Advantages and disadvantages of free higher education
College and university education has become very important in today's life. Wherever you see an advertisement for job, there is some certain criteria for certain posts. For example for marketing executive employers prefer MBA Marketing person, for eye surgeons hospitals prefer oculist. Without a college degree a person is unqualified for such posts. Some people believe that university graduates should pay the full cost of their education. Others say that university education should be free. Let’s consider advantages and disadvantages.
On the one hand, higher education leads to a more educated and productive workforce and it does offer some external benefits to society Also, everybody will get an equal chance to pursue higher studies, independent of their economic background and enabling merit to become the sole criteria. If the education is given free to all then admission will be given wholly on merit basis. This will result in increase in level of competition. It will be certainly beneficial to everybody those who could get admissions. Brilliant students will build a strong nation.
On the other hand, if people have to pay to go to university, they would value the education more. In this situation, students motivation for achieving good performance is expected to be high. Then, if the government of a country takes policy to fully finance the college education, the government has to limit the number of colleges and universities since their budget is not limitless and it will produce many problems. And Top up fees enable more investment in universities. It will also help attract and keep the best teachers and researchers.
This issue has both positive and negative sides as we saw above. The best thing will be to make the education free for those who are economically backward, are really incapable of paying fees for education but they have caliber. But education should not be made free to people who...
We pay a price for everything we get or take in this world. Although ambitions are well worth having, they are not to be cheaply won. Every day is an opportunity to make your life the way you want it to be. Anything is possible when you work towards it one day at a time. Skip a day and you lose momentum. Try to do it all at once and you will burn out. Work steadily and consistently to make every day count and you will reach your goals. Soon, with consistent effort, those little bits add up to major accomplishments. Is there something you want to change? Today is the day to start changing. Is there a new customer you want to land? Today is the day to start making it happen. You control today and you can control your life.
When speaking of whether highereducation should be free for all, I couldn’t stop thinking about all the problematic issues that would arise. For instance, students would lack that sense of ambition and drive to succeed I know this because I’ve met people who’ve had everything handed to them, and through their actions and behaviors you can see that they seemed not to care as much about education as those who were taught to get things on their own. Also there would be insufficient funds --where would the money come from? And lastly, students would place less value on education. Those are some reasons why I believe...

...What are advantages and disadvantages of market economy?
There are many advantages to a free market economy. They range from the moral issues to the practical issues. We will deal mainly with the practical ones.
-Unprecedented innovation. Free markets are wrought with inventions and the capital to research them. Countries classified as having a free market have been responsible for the vast majority of inventions since the 19th century.
-Very high income mobility. This means that under a free market system it is easier to move around income brackets. This is not to say it is easy, it is just easier to become rich or poor when you're left to your own devices as opposed to a controlled economy where resources are allocated by the government.
-Massive increases in efficiency and productivity. This happens from the survival of the fittest aspect of free markets. Firms that have higher costs than others (by producing inefficiently) will go out of business as those that are more efficient prosper. Thus, firms are always looking for cheaper ways to do things (this drives costs and prices down, etc etc)
-A much higher GDP. Free market-leaning countries have higher GDPs than command market-leaning economies. This is because they produce more.
-Very productive tax system. Due to the huge wealth...
