"Student loan debt in the U.S. now exceeds $1 trillion, more than the nation's credit-card debt. This timely book explains how and why student loans evolved, the concerns they've raised along the way, and how each policy designed to fix student loans winds up making things worse. The authors, a father and son team, provide an intergenerational, interdisciplinary approach to understanding how, over the last 70 years, Americans incrementally, with the best intentions, created our current student loan disaster. They examine the competing interests and shifting societal expectations that contributed to the problem, and offer recommendations for confronting the larger problem of college costs and student borrowing in the future"--

Nicht nur der Wirtschafts- und Finanzsektor ist in den Vereinigten Staaten von Krisen geschüttelt. Auch die amerikanische Demokratie, das politische und gesellschaftliche System sowie das Gesundheits- und Bildungswesen zeigen schwere Krisensymptome. Führende Expertinnen und Experten – darunter der Wirtschaftsnobelpreisträger Paul Krugman und die Philosophin Nancy Fraser – analysieren in diesem Band die aktuelle innen- und außenpolitische Problemlage der USA und stellen sie in einen historischen Kontext. Während die internationale Dominanz Amerikas schwindet und die Idee seines Exzeptionalismus infrage steht, bleibt das Land gleichwohl für Deutschland und die westlichen Verbündeten politisch und kulturell ein zentraler Bezugspunkt.
