RE: Response To Trostparadox's Student Projects Ideas Post

I like to point out college text books are only expensive in developed countries. Countries like India and China have what they call the international edition. Which is basically all the same info but printed in paperback and recycle paper. The prices of those books are 1/10th of that of developed countries. The share of knowledge exists for all. The question is who is willing to spend the time to teach and or learn. Best.

Interesting, I didn’t know that…

I remember a friend borrowing a textbook and taking it to the print shop where they made me a new textbook for 1/10 the price like you said. Totally normal practice.

Good point. Even 1/10th is not free. Covering these costs anywhere in the world by participating in Hive can be beneficial to all students.
