7 things to watch out for when student debt forgiveness is adopted

Now that the Biden administration is fully in the driver’s seat, student debt cancellation has come to the fore. Consider these numbers. Student debt is estimated at $ 1.7 trillion. The average student carries around $ 30,000 in student loans.

If $ 10,000 in student debt were to be forgiven, it is estimated that one-third of borrowers (between $ 15 million and $ 16.3 million) would become debt-free. Of course, if the number reaches $ 50,000, as some lawmakers suggest, the impact would be even greater.

Putting aside personal reflections on the wisdom of going this route, it has the potential to trigger a substantial stimulus in the economy.

And as an investor, it’s fair to ask where this money would go. After all, there is nothing wrong with passing this stimulus on to investors.

A counter-argument is that the absence of a monthly payment may not provide enough money to have an impact. However, Senator Elizabeth Warren spoke about the effect of student loans in preventing many generations of millennials and millennials from pursuing holistic life goals such as buying a home, creating a business or the creation of a family.

With that in mind, we’ve prepared this special presentation that looks at 7 actions that could benefit if borrowers are freed from the burden of student loans.
