    Don’t Bank on Student Loan Forgiveness

    Less than 1% of applicants get their college debt forgiven, so the current student loan forgiveness program is an epic failure. Politicians are making big promises on how they will forgive student loans, but where will that 2 trillion dollars come from?

Simply vital listening for anyone with kids

I love this and although in the UK things are set up differently, I can see us moving rapidly towards the US model and so this is solid sound advice from a very solid group of passionate people that put everything into their content and teaching. The Lord has been nudging me recently to get in touch with DR to talk about what we can do in the UK so I must write to him soon. Keep the great work coming team Ramsey, we appreciate you.

Amazing

I’m from the UK so things are slightly different here but never the less it really gets you thinking - the student loan crisis all over the world is out of control - well done Dave and Team for highlighting this problem! I listen to Dave’s show everyday and he gets calls daily with people who have 100/200k plus in student loan debt... HOW CAN PEOPLE BUILD A FUTURE WITH THAT HANGING OVER THEIR HEAD! they can’t and something needs to be done about it
