Explains how hard-working, responsible graduates become mired in impossible debt. Reviews the history of a predatory industry that has bribed universities, financial aid officers, and Congress to strip all consumer protections. Details the underhanded tactics, usurious fees, and draconian collection practices that have driven borrowers out of jobs, out of the country, and out of their minds.
