A talk by Brian Holmes

Check out “Silence = Debt” – A talk by Brian Holmes about a particularly threatening aspect of the American economy: the student loan business. He shows how the use of federally guaranteed loans to make college more accessible has ended up creating a monster. The loan business itself, the extraordinary burden of debt that results from it, the rising tuition costs that drive the debt explosion, and the deeper transformations of the knowledge- based economy will all be treated in turn.
