The End of College Is Coming / Politics / Student Finances

By: Stephen_McBride

Every spring, millions of American high school kids are faced with this choice.

It sounds like a no-brainer. And it used to be a no-brainer... because college used to cost a reasonable amount of money.

As recently as 1980, you could get a four-year bachelor’s degree at a public school for less than $10,000, on average. These days it’ll cost you at least $40,000… or upward of $140,000 for a private school... or well over $250,000 for a top school.

Unless a kid has rich parents or a full ride scholarship, he must borrow a ton of money to pay for the privilege of attending college.

Why Back to School Season Should Scare You / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Rodney_Johnson

It’s that time again – back to school season – when we have to drive a little slower, watch for flashing yellow signs that signal much higher ticket costs, put down our cell phones, and try to remember the rules on when to stop for school buses (always on your side of the road and, if the bus is facing you, when the road doesn’t have a median).

But those things aren’t scary, they’re just good safety precautions. The worrisome parts are costs and headcount.

Government-Pumped Student Loan Bubble Sets Up Next Financial Crisis / Interest-Rates / Student Finances

By: MoneyMetals

Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are promising as much as $1.6 trillion in student debt forgiveness for millions of borrowers. Critics smell a cynical campaign ploy to try to buy the youth vote.

How is it either realistic or fair to declare an entire category of debt to be assumed by taxpayers?

Regardless, pie-in-the-sky proposals to cancel student debt shed light on a very down-to-earth problem for not only college students and recent graduates – but also for the economy and financial markets.

Student loans now rank as the second largest category of American consumer debt – bigger than credit cards, bigger than auto loans, and behind only mortgages.

8 Reasons Why Investment in Education Always Pays Off / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Submissions

University brings about so much imagination within us. Secondary school is over and we think of furthering our education and obtaining the great successes that await us. It seems anything can be possible as we transition into adulting. Picture having the help of an Oxbridge diploma with the highest accolades. Companies scrambling to offer the best career opportunities and suddenly the corporate ladder seems to be much shorter. But then we consider all the baggage that comes with uni. The need to find time for assignments, devoting 4+ years of life to courses, and the cost of a quality education in the UK is quite substantial. With skyrocketing tuition, many wonder if the financial investment for a degree makes sense. For those of you on the fence about higher education, let’s take a look at 8 reasons why an investment in education will always pay off.

How Can a College Student Invest Wisely? / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Submissions

Investing is an important issue at any age, and it’s an excellent opportunity to learn about finances and earn some money. When you're a college student, though, that's a huge advantage and responsibility, especially if to think that you need to find and give up some money for this hobby. Therefore, some people think that you should only start after graduation, but we cannot agree with this statement. Of course, not every student has the extra money in his or her pocket, but if you do find some – that's a good chance to stand out from the crowd.

What Comes After a Trillion in Student Debt? / Interest-Rates / Student Finances

By: Jared_Dillian

Headline in Bloomberg the other day:

“Millennials Are Facing $1 Trillion in Debt.”

A trillion always sounds like a lot. It is a lot. But while the absolute number is large, that is not the issue.

The issue is what makes up this millennial debt. It’s mostly student loans, and a staggeringly high amount of these loans are in delinquency.

And this is at the top of an economic expansion!

On a societal level, imagine what happens if the economy takes a wrong turn and these student loans—which are already 10% delinquent—go to 40% delinquent?

Best Ways to Finance Your Studies in Abroad / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Submissions

Studying abroad is a dream of many Indian students. Studying abroad is quite difficult for a student of middle class as it is expensive. There are few benefits of studying abroad. The foremost thing is that you have to look care of all your things by your own; initially it will be very tough to adjust with the busy life. You can either take a loan or start a part time job to get yourself financed. Doing a part time is not a good choice as getting involved in any official work will not allow much time for your studies. You can go for taking an educational loan from a banks. Malaysia is now a preferred destination for  students seeking higher education.

It’s mid-winter, which means millions of high school seniors are winding up their childhoods and planning for what comes next. For many this next stage is college.

But in yet another example of how we baby boomers have rigged the system in our favor at the expense of pretty much everyone else, student loans – barely necessary when most boomers graduated 40 years ago – have become a life-defining problem for our kids and grandkids.

Student Debt Slavery II: Time to Level the Playing Field / Politics / Student Finances

By: Ellen_Brown

The lending business is heavily stacked against student borrowers. Bigger players can borrow for almost nothing, and if their investments don’t work out, they can put their corporate shells through bankruptcy and walk away. Not so with students. Their loan rates are high and if they cannot pay, their debts are not normally dischargeable in bankruptcy. Rather, the debts compound and can dog them for life, compromising not only their own futures but the economy itself.

“Students should not be asked to pay more on their debt than they can afford,” said Donald Trump on the presidential campaign trail in October 2016. “And the debt should not be an albatross around their necks for the rest of their lives.”

Student Debt Slavery Bankrolling Financiers on the Backs of the Young / Politics / Student Finances

By: Ellen_Brown

The advantages of slavery by debt over “chattel” slavery—ownership of humans as a property right—were set out in an infamous document called the Hazard Circular, reportedly circulated by British banking interests among their American banking counterparts during the American Civil War. It read in part:

Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are glad of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of the laborers, while the European plan, led by England, is that capital shall control labor by controlling wages.

The Student Loan Bubble and Economic Collapse / Interest-Rates / Student Finances

By: Antonius_Aquinas

The inevitable collapse of the student loan “market” and with it the takedown of many higher educational institutions will be one of the happiest and much needed events to look forward to in the coming months/years. Whether the student loan bubble bursts on its own or implodes due to a general economic collapse, does not matter as long as higher education is dealt a death blow and can no longer be a conduit of socialist and egalitarian nonsense for the inculcation of young minds.

Important Money Management Tips For Teenagers / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

Financial literacy among teenagers is much lower than it should be. This is, in part, because money management education is not properly taught in schools. Most of the teens have no idea what personal finance is and why it is important. Parents are the ones that need to teach teens about money management. Obviously, this is much more difficult than it seems. The good news is that raising financially literate teenagers can be done. Follow these tips to do exactly that.

The question we need to demand answers to is why has college costs for students exploded upward, while salaries and job positions for graduates has not?  What is driving the relentless and inexplicable surge in the debt burden for students and their parents?

More than 40 million young Americans carry federal and private student loan debt – amounting to over $1 trillion. Defaults are on the rise and the issue has grown to become a nasty wealth transfer mechanism, as well as sad example of the failure of finance in general.

This week, President Obama announced a new initiative framed as a way of addressing the issue. Sadly, it is far from the mark, and just one more indication that monetary masters are the real puppeteers.

What Student Debt Problem; Simple Solution ends the problem / Interest-Rates / Student Finances

By: Sol_Palha

A problem clearly stated is a problem half-solved. Dorothea Brande

The real issue is that there are college students that don’ want to work and want to go to the best colleges money can buy, and the parents are encouraging this. What happened to the day you went to the college you could afford, and you worked to pay for all of it or, at least, helped your parents.  The problem lies with the parents and the kids; the parents are encouraging this asinine behaviour.  Today’s generation believe that they are entitled to the best of the best without having to work for it.   College Graduates that are drowning in debt, but still refuse to give up on luxuries is a perfect example of this principle in action. Instead of tightening their belts, they continue to add to the debt and then cry wolf when everything starts to fall apart.
