When it comes to the student loan debt crisis, there’s a lot of blame to go around. In this episode we’ll take a look at the history of the government-backed student loan industry, how Sallie Mae became a player, and how student loans have led to soaring college costs. You’ll also hear how double-digit interest rates, subprime loans and large student loan repayments have led millions of borrowers into default and forbearance; why you can’t declare bankruptcy on a student loan; and why one dad will spend his life paying back $250,000 for a film degree his son never even used.
