Several stimulus proposals call for the cancelation of all or up to $50,000 of student loan debt, but would such relief help or hurt the economy? Mark Goldwein, Senior Vice President and Senior Policy Director for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB) stops by Clark Hill’s Credit Eco to Go to discuss his latest article “Canceling Student Loan Debt is Poor Economic Stimulus”.
