I have been writing for a while about what seems to me to be an obvious bubble that has been building for years in the college debt market.

He has written several articles on the college debt bubble like the one that you can find here

We go in depth about the cause of the situation that the universities in the US are in today and how someone thinking of going to higher education should correctly make that decision.
