More about Sold My Soul for a Student Loan: Higher Education and the Political Economy of the Future:

Daniel Kirsch’s title examines this important issue of student debt in this country from a diversity of perspectives, focusing on the fact that it is hindering the ability of millions of people to enter the job market, the housing market, the consumer economy, and the political process.

American higher education boasts one of the most impressive legacies in the world, but the price of admission for many is now endless debt. As this book shows, increasing educational indebtedness undermines the real value of higher education in our democracy.

Kirsch helps readers understand this dilemma by examining how student debt became commonplace and what the long-term effects of such an ongoing reality might be.

Sold My Soul for a Student Loan offers the information that one in four American adults have at least some student debt, and more millennials have student debt than have mortgage debt. Kirsch suggests that such a statistic leads to an entire generation being unable to realize the "American Dream." He warns that that debt may undermine both higher education—and our democracy.
