Special Edition: Pros & Cons of Student Loan Forgiveness

We covered the basics of the plan when it was first announced a couple of weeks ago during our daily news roundups. But today, we’re digging deeper into the potential pros and cons to the individuals impacted and the overall U.S. economy. Today’s first guest is the director of economic policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center, Shai Akabas. His areas of expertise include higher education – specifically, how we finance it.  Then later, you’ll learn more about exactly who is eligible and how to get the debt relief if you are. We’re getting answers from financial coach Meagan Landress, a certified student loan professional with the company “Student Loan Planner.” This episode is brought to you by and Get ad-free episodes and support the show by becoming an INSIDER:
