Today's guest is Mike Vine, the Editor at Schiff Gold News and the Principal at Centinel Consulting. I sat down with him last week in his Portsmouth, NH office to discuss the recent paper by Addison Quale titled, "The Student Loan Bubble: Gambling with America’s Future."
Episode #375 In a Nutshell:
- the place for personal responsibility in the student loan debt crisis
- Student loans represent the third bubble in the last 20 years, following the dot coms in the late-90s and the mortgage crisis of 2008
- there is a 300% increase in student loan debt in the last 10 years
- almost 25% of all loans are in some state of non-payment (default, deference, or forbearance)
- the significance of debt to GDP ratio
- the economic implications of this crisis
- How can people protect themselves? Precious metals? Bitcoin? Expatriation?
- Mike's advice for students
