Interesting Talks About Student Loans

 

Published on Jul 2, 2016

“Once upon a time in America,” says professor Sajay Samuel, “going to college did not mean graduating with debt.” Today, higher education has become a consumer product — costs have skyrocketed, saddling students with a combined debt of over $1 trillion, while universities and loan companies make massive profits. Samuel proposes a radical solution: link tuition costs to a degree’s expected earnings so that students can make informed decisions about their future, restore their love of learning and contribute to the world in a meaningful way.

 

Entrepreneur Dusty Wunderlich exposes the catastrophic consequences of the student loan crisis using simple economics and explains how an oversupply of highly educated Americans is flooding the market and crushing student borrowers’ ability to thrive. Dusty proposes solutions for a more sustainable economic future and outlines a new way of decision making for parents, students, universities, and employers.
