THE HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE

This video goes over the economic risks being taken to enter into higher education. Something to think about, will we be able to maintain in the higher education bubble in our or our future generations? Is there an expected crash as the housing market had. I believe this is something that needs further investigation and insight.

America is facing a higher education bubble. Like the housing bubble, it is the product of cheap credit coupled with popular expectations of ever-increasing returns on investment, and as with housing prices, the cheap credit has caused college tuitions to vastly outpace inflation and family incomes. Now this bubble is bursting.

    This is a really interesting video and something that really needs to be addressed. What if people want to go to a professional school like medical or law school? How much debt will they be in? I wonder what will happen when my kids want to go to college? Maybe I should start saving now. It’s just a shame that some people won’t be able to attend college just because of cost. There are so many gifted people out there who want to learn and having a passion for a particular subject area. Thanks for posting this video.
