Title : Less Student Debt from the Start: What Role Should the Tax System Play?
ASIN : 1512384437
Description : According to the National Center for Educational Statistics, the costs of college education for the 2011-2012 academic year were estimated to be $14,300 at public institutions and $37,800 at private nonprofit institutions. Between 2001 and 2011, the costs for undergraduate tuition, along with room and board, at public institutions rose 40 percent, and the costs of private institutions rose 28 percent. It now takes at least 36 calculations for a family to navigate the overwhelming web of tax incentives for higher education in the tax code. Each of those tax incentives has its own definition of qualified expenses, student eligibility, and income thresholds. Education tax incentives cannot be allowed to drive inequality the way they do in today's flawed tax code.

That is an imaginary definition.'

If the word flâneur conjures up visions of Baudelaire, boulevards and bohemia – then what exactly is a flâneuse?

In this gloriously provocative and celebratory book, Lauren Elkin defines her as ‘a determined resourceful woman keenly attuned to the creative potential of the city, and the liberating possibilities of a good walk’. Part cultural meander, part memoir, Flâneuse traces the relationship between the city and creativity through a journey that begins in New York and moves us to Paris, via Venice, Tokyo and London, exploring along the way the paths taken by the flâneuses who have lived and walked in those cities.

From nineteenth-century novelist George Sand to artist Sophie Calle, from war correspondent Martha Gellhorn to film-maker Agnes Varda, Flâneuse considers what is at stake when a certain ki…
