Bubble of Higher-Ed, like all bubbles, is built on public policy in favor of taking on large amounts of debt ( #college #bubbles )

Crossing Wall St. on the bubble of higher education: "Much like the housing bubble, the Higher Ed bubble is being driven by cheap, government supported credit. The problem is compounded by the fact that hugely important financial decisions are placed on the backs of 19-year-olds, many of whom simply don't have the life experience to weigh the implications of a gigantic, 20-year debt load. Heck, at least the irresponsible mortgage borrowers during the crazy days were adults (even though many acted like infants)."
