“Since being quite young, I’ve had a very strong sense of independence and survival. As a child, I was on my own two feet emotionally.”

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has introduced her first piece of legislation. It’s called the Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act, and would reduce the rate students pay on federally-subsidized student loans for one year, from 3.4% to 0.75%.
Without congressional action, on July 1 the rate is set to double from 3.4% to 6.8%.
Warren brings up an interesting point – her bill simply asks students to pay the same rates that big banks pay for borrowing.
She’s literally just asking if college grads can get the same deal as bank CEOs. The exact same interest rate. Not even a bailout or anything fancy (pipe dreams!) - just the same interest rate.
Given how much money banks hold onto and don’t spend on consumer goods or production, and given how much money college grads stand to make over their lives and how much they do spend on consumer goods, and given how much damage a bank can do to the economy vs. how little a college grad can do
just saying, the college grad is probably the better investment. Lower risk, higher returns in bulk, contribute to the economy more steadily.
