I disagree it is good for students. Lower interest rates made it more, not less difficult to buy a house. Same logic here. If you want my full rationale, read my post

You make some good points, Dali, but I think you oversimplify things a bit. I do agree that the underlying problem is the price of college and not the cost of taking out loans, which I've written about here and here.
