When it comes down to it, there is only one sound economic reason to pursue a college education and that is deferred gratification – forgoing a smaller, immediate reward to wait and obtain a larger one down the road. But, without this reward awaiting many students upon graduation, a college education is starting to look more and more like one tremendously bad investment. According to an article read by Del Walmsley on this podcast, “student debt has gone up by 74% in the last 5 years” and it doesn’t look like it’s changing in direction. What does this mean for you? Maybe it’s time to start looking at a college education for its soundness as an investment instead of looking at it like a done deal.
