How You Can Hack Away at That Massive Student Loan Debt

There are several ways to fix student loan debt problems. None of them could be defined as “quick.”
According to a report released by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in February, student loan debt has climbed to $1.16 trillion. While still a distant second to U.S. mortgage debt ($8.17 trillion), it now exceeds the total value of every U.S. car loan ($955 billion), all credit card debt ($700 billion) and all home equity loans ($510 billion). It’s also just shy of all the money ($1.3 trillion) the Federal Reserve has in circulation. If that student loan debt grows by another $33 billion, as it did last quarter, every dollar bill and handful of spare change in the country couldn’t pay it.
