New Podcast Episode: Student Loan Forgiveness
It’s The AAF Exchange — your source for clear, data-driven insight into today’s economic and domestic policy issues.
In our latest episode, AAF Data and Policy Analyst Tom Lee explains the implications of a blanket student-loan forgiveness policy. He outlines the Biden Administration’s efforts to forgive student loans thus far and explains the $10,000 per student blanket forgiveness that the administration is considering now. Lee works through how such a policy would disproportionately help the wealthy while simultaneously failing to address the cost of higher education, and he then points out a better policy option.
