Because of its success last month, the Henry George School of Social Science of New York City has asked me to give my college education/student loan lecture again in two weeks. Here are the details—note that the address is different and not at the school:
“College Education: Certain Debt, Uncertain Income”
6:30 PM, Wednesday, January 29, 2014
NYC Seminar and Conference Center
71 West 23rd Street (corner of 6th Avenue)
New York, NY 10010
As always, courses at the school charge no tuition. Here’s the abstract:
College Education: Certain Debt, Uncertain Income. Soaring costs for education, together with limited job opportunities and stagnant wage growth, place substantial financial and psychological burdens on students.
Noted columnist and researcher Matt Leichter reviews tuition inflation, cuts in public funding and the business of lending to students. Mr. Leichter will also propose reforms to the system of financing college education.
The last lecture went splendidly. I was on my feet for nearly three hours, the last of which spent answering questions. Hope to see you there!
