Primary and Secondary education at private institutions in urban India is generally expensive. Unfortunately not every school delivers consistent quality education to the level that the price promises. But schools regardless of quality seem to be able to attract promising and eligible students. The best institutions get their early bird students and their seats fill up fast. Those not among the best also get their share of bright students. These capable kids were probably refused admission at preferred schools because they ran out of seats or had concerns about parents’ income criteria. An artificial sense of scarcity pervades and this probably contributes to the relative price inelasticity of demand of urban middle class population. This can be ameliorated if the supply side is augmented. Thus, if more private players can be encouraged to bring up new quality schools, they can help raise competition and lower prices by removing artificial scarcity. Economic incentives may be provided to these institutions so that they can sustain quality education consistently. Thus, while price of education will fall, quality will go up.Abraham Lincoln’s Fiscal Cliff
