Question and answer
Q: Most European countries have nationalized their universities and colleges. Consider that some countries have also used the law to ban private colleges. Should higher education be classified as a
natural monopoly in these European countries?
A: Classifying education in European countries would be dependent on one?s position regarding higher education. [ In America, anyone who is able to either afford college, or who's parents have connections to institutes of higher education stand to have the opportunity to attend. There are slots still available for those who have scored accordingly on entrance exams and standardized tests, but the
college atmosphere is a great melting pot. Each college/university is filled with people who truly want to be there, and those who have felt an obligation to family to gain knowledge. This is not the case in many instances in European countries. The students who attend college are placed there strategically, and it is performance based. Their measured aptitude and skill sets are critiqued prior to entry into the institutions, and those who are not deemed capable are weeded out. This promotes the question of whether or not universities in general should accept anyone who is willing and able to pay for school, or if they should continue to maintain their higher standards. A natural monopoly, when looking at education, is something that is privatized and only the few selected are able to attend. It is no different from having a private school in America with higher entrance qualifications and monetary requirements. Thus, based on the definition of a natural monopoly, one would have to classify it as a natural monopoly since the schools that exist are not being replaced with new schools to provide different educational opportunities. If we equated this example to the presence or absence of a natural resource it would be similar to clean water. Is clean water a natural monopoly in America since we are all used to having it? We are likely unable to function without its presence, and we are considered a more evolved nation because of it. ]
