A brief but informative piece regarding the referenced issue. Good expository commentary and links. The author belies no bias and merely lays out the specific facts relating to the matter at hand. Contextually relevant, particularly as the issue of debt amongst the younger age groups, specifically concerning higher education debt, is a matter of much debate currently. This is especially the case in political circles.
