Professor N. Gregory Young truly recognizes the concerns involving the student textbook affordability issues. In his 426 Finance Real Estate and Law course titled ‘Legal Aspects of International Business’ he informs his students that although the American publisher of his required text charges about $200, there is also “a nearly-identical international edition of the same book […] available online at a fraction of the regular textbook’s price.” Despite his aid in helping students save money on textbooks he is still humble as he states: “I should do more towards the promotion of textbook affordability, and in the future strive to do so.”
