..Americans, as Malcolm Harris recently pointed out, now owe almost a
trillion dollars in student loans, more than they owe in credit card
debt. Student debt, he explained, “is an exceptionally punishing kind to
have. Not only is it inescapable through bankruptcy, but student loans
have no expiration date and collectors can garnish wages, social
security payments, and even unemployment benefits.”

little, intellectually, to many of those who are courting debtors’
prison to pay for it. The unkindest cut of all, of course, is that those
who drop out must still carry the full burden of the loans that so many
of them have taken out—even though they will, in all probability, earn
less and fare worse in hard times than graduates. Yet even unemployment
among graduates has been rising—as have rates of student loan default.
