Student Debt and some Random Thoughts

This week I had some very good feedback and discourse with my readers about the high price of post secondary education and how it pertains to Family Finances and Personal Finance. This topic was suggested by my wife and I didn’t think it would amount to much, but to me, I think it really opened my eyes to the fact that most parents want the best for their kids, and most parents want to help their kids get a post secondary education of some kind. The limiting factors in their ability or inclination to help are varied, but I did not hear from a single person who said they would not help their kids, even though they had the financial means to do so, and I think I was glad to see that.

Next week I am thinking of looking closer at my family’s finances and maybe wondering out loud why we are spending money on some of the things we do. We’ll see.

Have a great weekend.

    In my view our economy is so market driver that any mass reduction in oil consumption would collapse it. Slowly privatizing out of the welfare state thereby changing the economy to “Survival need” driven is the only way out. Mass consumption must go forth at all cost.
