This is where private enterprise isn’t as good as government. When I went to college government loans were 3%. An investment that paid off for the government.

Then it was decided that private was always better than government. My children get loans from private banks at 8%. Which means fewer can go to college. Which means that in the future the nation as a whole has fewer college graduates. Which means industry will go to nations that do encourage college graduates. Which means the government collects less tax and private industry employs fewer at all levels.

Private banks, as well as most private industry, doesn’t think 20-30 years into the future. They’re beholden to the next quarter. Only the government can afford to think a generation into the future.
