#166: Forget Student Loans - Start Youth with Assets.
Play • 1 hr 48 min

The cost of going to college and university is growing daily. For students from low income families, student loans are the only way to fund college/university. Professor Willie Elliott of the University of Michigan argues instead, that building assets as early as possible will set youth up for success.

Imagine if you could explore, with genuine curiosity, the most controversial and divisive topics of our time. The conversations would push you to explore new areas and uncover insightful ‘a-ha’ moments that pique your interest. I’m Christopher, and I have created engaging Podcast discussions since 2018 to do exactly this. I have completed Podcast series on abortion, tobacco control, basic income and more. I invite guests involved in these areas to share with me their opinions. My hope is that through this natural exploration, I can craft a Podcast experience that attempts to build bridges during a time when we need it the most. Join me on the Open Minds with Christopher Balkaran Podcast.
