    “Student debt holders have higher levels of education on average and, hence, higher incomes.” is highly speculative. What we may be seeing is the declining income of student debt holders as the market becomes flooded with them.

    Another useful trend to put on these graphs would be the disposable income of people in these groups.

    Money going to loan payments is money that isn’t going to iPads. The usefulness of a college degree to a government’s tax revenue base is declining rapidly.

    The Ivory Tower is getting more and more glittering all the time, with life after university (and outside university in general) getting bleaker and bleaker.

    Someone’s going to nail something to a church door soon — or post it on Twitter, YouTube, or Facebook — that’s going to set the old order ablaze.
