Needed: Rapid Investment in Higher Education
Another blogger somewhere recently suggested that a major federal investment in education could forestall a recession. Whatever the validity of that claim, it may make sense to offer very low-interest federal student loans to anyone who wishes to return to school now. Doing so could give the apparently rising numbers of unemployed people something productive to do. I would recommend making the loans to anyone who is enrolled on at least a half-time basis and is taking and passing at least one course per semester in math, science, or engineering.
