"Debt Free at 50? Something Has to Change." A timely lament from Stamford, CT.
"With all this debt, how can I ever afford to buy a house? Or have children? What about paying for their education? These are things you don't think about so much when you're 18 and signing on the dotted line of the loan disbursement application. ..
The answer is not more loans, or stopgap tax credits, which don't help families who can't afford to pay up front. What we need to unshackle the future generation of this country is for colleges and universities to start charging students less. "
Or...alternatives to college that are more efficient and competitive than the current and higher-quality jobs across the board.
