New Podcast Episode: Forgiving Student Loan Debt
It’s The AAF Exchange — your source for clear, data-driven insight into today’s economic and domestic policy issues.
Our latest episode features AAF President and former college professor Douglas Holtz-Eakin discussing various student debt forgiveness proposals from 2020 presidential candidates. Eliminating student debt does not truly reduce the cost of college, he argues. Further, singling out student debt for forgiveness raises the question of why the federal government is forgiving this kind of debt and not others. Holtz-Eakin also discusses Congress’ remaining business before the August recess.
Future episodes will answer other pressing policy questions, including:
- Why is Congress considering legislation on banking for marijuana businesses?
- What’s driving the popularity of “Medicare for All”?
- What is the economic impact of immigration?
- How should the housing-finance system be reformed?
Whether you’re on your lunch break or commuting home, The AAF Exchange will keep you up to speed on today’s most pressing policy issues.
