Although higher education remains a good investment for most people, the past 15 years have seen rapid growth in student debt and an alarming rise in the number of borrowers who appear to be struggling to pay off that debt. In this webinar recording from June 26, 2019, Karen Dynan, Professor of the Practice at Harvard University, explains the changes in the economy, the higher education industry, and federal student loan policy that have contributed to these trends. She goes on to discuss ways in which the federal student loan program can be improved to produce better outcomes for individuals who need loans to finance their higher education.
