Quote Of The Day

“I’ve been asking myself that about student loans for quite some time. It’s still not clear to me how much, if at all, they benefit the students they are supposed to help. It seems at least equally plausible that they’re simply feeding the tuition inflation which makes it impossible for a normal kid to work his way through college–that is, that all the benefits of the student loans are not being appropriated by the students, but by the faculty and administration, and the non-borrowing students, who get to enjoy the shiny new facilities that tuition inflation helps pay for.” — Megan McArdle
