The reason why I think the government operate the education system like that is the government is in election system, which is elected by a few years performance. Because of the current election system, the government is not capable to do any long-term project, especially it will led to a temporary decrease in economy. Just like a human that will have fever when we recovering from the cold, the power of market can fix its own problem, which will led to a temporary decrease in economy, but will rebuild the balance of economy. Like the issue mentioned in the documentary, in 2008’s economic crisis, the tuition should decline just like other business. While United States government consider promoting college education is the solution the increase the employment rate, they intervene in the education business and cause the higher and higher tuition.
To sum up, government intervention may be not a wise choice for the market if it can not consider the situation in a long term.
