Draft: Making Dreams a Reality The amount of students that attend an out-of-state university for college is about 13.7% (“Percentage of Out-of-State Students at Public Universities”). This statistic is remarkably low, considering the growing amount of young adults attending college. In-state tuition is expensive for most citizens, as out-of-state costs are completely unaffordable. Out-of-state tuition costs can easily triple the amount of in-state costs, meaning most students find themselves attending an in-state university without a second thought. The reason for these high out-of-state tuition fees is due to the state government believing that these extra costs are necessary because of tax dollars. State schools are funded by the state’s

The cost of tuition among colleges and universities is highly diversified and indefinite. Students shouldn’t be financial problems that are associated with the high tuition cost for their education because it creates unnecessary stress and financial problems. The student’s primary concern should be their academic performance and learning. The tuition fee includes extracurricular expenses such as lifestyle amenities that may not be essential toward the student education yet they are still being charged for it. Universities and colleges are lacking a stable and regulated tuition system to provide a better education for a reasonable price. The high tuition cost affects the academic performance, enrollment in higher education, and increase
Out of state tuition shouldn’t limit people who seek a better education. When looking for collages to go to people tend to stay in state because the cost is cheaper. What is the actual tax dollars that go to the in state students?

To fix this problem you could either have a universal tax that gives money to all schools in America this way schools have to give everyone who wants to go to their school pay the same cost. The other idea I have to fix this problem is to use the money the schools get already and have everyone take a cut this would increase instate tuition but also eliminate out of state tuition.
In all three degrees of price discrimination firms are able to make more profit and eliminate any excess capacity they may have. Firms are able to do this by charging higher prices to those consumers with a more price inelastic demand for their product. The firm is reducing the welfare of these consumers by changing them at the maximum price they are willing to

Your tuition fee is $8,655, this is for all four years of public college. If you want to go to a private college the price is a little different.

With first degree price discrimination, every firm would like to charge a different price to each of its customers. If possible, the firm would charge each consumer the maximum price that consumer is willing to pay for each unit bought. The maximum price the consumers are willing to pay is known as the customer 's reservation price. The act of charging each customer his or her reservation price is called first degree price discrimination or perfect price discrimination.
Price Discrimination - The Only Type of Good Discrimination Price discrimination is common term used throughout the economics realm. In a perfect economic world, one price would fit all, however, we are not nor will we ever be in a perfect economical balance. Price discrimination takes on many different titles but can be defined by one simple statement of selling the same product to separate individuals for a different price (Elegido 633). Many consumers may identify this as being an unlawful act of discrimination, however, in the economical sense it is a lawful way of increasing its economical outcome. By utilizing price discrimination, firms are able to identify groups of individuals who are willing to pay more for a product and be able to charge less for other groups to attract a more profitable outcome while also increasing its client base (Edwards 298). Often, firms shy away from this type of tactic due to the negative perceptions it may give them, yet find other ways within the market to offer discounts under a different title only to camouflage the discrimination with a fancier term (Elegido 634). Whether a firm chooses to utilize price discrimination or not or whether one feels it is a legal way to charge more for a product, it has been proven to be a useful tool in both maximizing profits and attracting a client base both legally and ethically.
Price discrimination can be defined as when the same good or service is sold at different prices to different consumers. If we look at this definition of price discrimination, for an example, we can show that price discrimination can be seen in the entrance tickets of parks such as Universal studios; this is due to the fact that there are discounts for children and senior citizens. (Phlips L. , 1983) However, this can be seen as not being discriminative at all due to the fact that if the price difference full reflects the difference in the cost of carrying the good from the seller’s location to the buyers’ location.
Introduction In general ‘microeconomic theory’, Third-Degree Price Discrimination is said to be Pareto-inefficient because it reduces consumer surplus (Corts 1998). However, this claim has never been pervasive than it is in this modern day and age. With fast and ever-growing advancement in modern technology, firms are able to collect, analyse and utilise consumer information to their great advantage (Liu and Shuai 2016). Armed with this precise knowledge about the consumer, they (firms) can target any group of consumers they like. This is good news for them, but what about the consumer surplus/welfare? (Liu and Shuai 2016).
Price discrimination is the practice of offering the same product to different consumers at different prices. This policy allows the producer to exploit the differences in elasticity of demand between buyers. A seller of baby formula could charge a higher price in Chinese markets where buyers are willing to pay high prices, and lower prices in the Australian market where buyers are less price sensitive. Price discrimination allows the producer to capture a higher profit between both markets than if they were charging a uniform price (Maskus, 2000, 1275).
