Could affirmative action be efficient in higher education?

Kurt W. Rotthoff

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 99, issue 3, 574-576

Abstract: Many states are outlawing the use of affirmative action, which has lead to the use of inefficient measures as a substitute. I show that schools still use affirmative action in the application process because of a down-stream demand from employers.
