I thought about all that as I read Dr. Joel Elvery’s intriguing article on student loan debt in a recent issue of Forefront, a publication of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.

Great mention by @Alert_Investor in @themotleyfool re/p2p lending #investment opportunities. https://www.fool.com/retirement/2016/12/11/peer-to-peer-lending-7-things-investors-should-kno.aspx 
Read up on P2P loans before you invest, because they're not for everyone -- and they may come with substantial risk.

#studentloans default rate is worse than for any other traditional form of consumer debt--much worse than you think: http://blog.credit.com/2016/08/the-student-loan-default-rate-is-way-worse-than-you-think-153306/
You may have heard that the student loan default rate isn't good, but it's probably worse than you realize.

It seems that for those who fund their college education with state-sponsored money, the word independence is actually two words: in and dependence.
