Debt cancellation is same as printing more money. Instead of lowering student tuitions and professor's salaries, the proposed debt cancellation will lead to more students taking new loans to support overpaid professors and many questionable expenses.
 

Beware one-line explanations of complex topics. Lots of people think they understand things like inflation, but they're wrong. My first job out of school was as data and programming support for a group of economists. I wasn't trained in economics but I saw enough to understand that there's a lot to it.

On a related topic, the price of gasoline here in Ottawa isn't far off what it was early in the spring before the price sky-rocketed. So, the world didn't end. The roads here are still full of humongous 3-ton pick-ups trucks on the way to buy groceries. At worst, some consumers had to modify their behaviour a bit for a while.

I've read (or maybe listened to a podcast) about the increase in college/university costs in the last generation. Most was due to increases in administration. They've done a good job getting rid of "expensive" professors and replacing them with temporary sessional instructors. The real price to be paid for that strategy will be realized in the years to come.

... to support overpaid professors ...
 

WHAT overpaid professors? Such an animal does not exist, except perhaps in some business schools.

I doubt it. They likely hired the least qualified and cheapest they could find so more money would flow to the Orange Oaf and his stooges.

Should she be paid more, less or the same as other Visiting Professors at Havard Law?

What's her pay, and how is it too much? Although to be honest I should have included law schools along with business schools as sometimes paying too much.

In the new anti-elitist Gilead world we're entering, everyone from a minimum wage burger flipper to university professors are overpaid. :)

"I'm just not going to leave," Trump told one aide, according to Haberman.
"We're never leaving," Trump told another. "How can you leave when you won an election?"

How can such in-your-face madness have a following? Is this what 3 generations of schlock TV does to people's brains? :)

The guy has even managed to pollute the judiciary.

Just one shit show after another. This time, it's immigration, https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/us-migrants-border-1.6589617.

If the US immigration system is screwed up, why not fix it instead of screaming at each other on camera? Makes no sense. All just one big third rate reality TV show, seems like sometimes.

America desperately needs a viable third political party.  As it is now, tribal politics rule.  Many "conservatives" simply vote for the candidate who is not Democrat.  Many "liberals" only vote for the candidate who is not Republican.  It is "us against them" for many voters and no longer about what is best for the country.

The Electoral College needs to be removed from elections.  Let the popular vote decide directly like most modern countries.
