Thanks Oliver, and I totally agree to all u said. Some people just have poor spending habits though. I don't feel sorry people who suffer for poor spending habits. ( Leaving beyond their means)

When I got married to a Canadian, I discovered my credit history had not traveled with me to Canada. Clean slate! For awhile, student loan creditors were calling me to threaten lawsuits but since it would cost more than my loans value to pursue, that's not gonna happen.

6:00 "Banks are giving out credit with a reckless disregard for the consumer's ability to repay". This is precisely what the banks did in 1928. A little less than a year later on Oct 24 1929 the 2nd greatest economic crash in modern history occurred. It happened again in 1987 (3rd largest) and again in 2008 (largest). It happens every single time regulations on financial institutions are reduced. We must understand that financial institutions are not out for our best interests. We have to become smarter people. I've been saying this for years: Math class should be about money. I have never used trigonometry or calculus in my life since high school.

There is one thing I genuinely don't get about crippling student loan. Why not say fuck it and emigrate to Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia or New Zealand? There are plenty of countries out there with similar (if not better) standard of living than US and all of them will gladly welcome English speaking, well educated worker. Sure, your debt in US would continue to grow at infinity, but that is only an issue if you want to work or own property in US. It would not stop you from visiting your friends & family, or even working remotely. Also, there is a good chance that there will be debt forgiveness program coming in upcoming decades.

I'm a little bit with Biden here when he de facto admits that the system is completely broken but bankruptcy isn't the solution. A bankruptcy system can only work if it is quite unlikely to get bankrupt. If everyone with a high student debt could apply for bankruptcy, the system would be turned ad absurdum. So I'm afraid that America must take the unpleasant route. First, fix your healthcare system. Second, fix your education system. Third, fix your bankruptcy system.

Going bankrupt for bad financial decisions ( like going on a Caribbean vacation on a credit card while not having a decent job) isn’t immoral. Going bankrupt for medical reasons like cancer, shame on the system…

In America most bankruptcies are medical and happen after someone has retired from earning, maybe because of age or health, and more dependant on a system which is set up to pillage your golden years rather than eaze you through them. ... And more and more suicides can be linked to demoralizing bankruptcy laws.

the united states is an elitist shit hole where the rich get richer off the suffering of people left out to die once they're used up. the nation as a whole deserves to go under and be absorbed by Canada and Mexico, at least that way the people will have some protection from the actions of the politicians that are in the pockets of the corporations and no none of us are fooled.

The credit card companies are the banks, institutions that never lose money. They give almost nothing for our bank accounts but soak us with loans and interest rates. The banks are not your friends. The evil of compound interest that the banks so much enjoy should be condemned and outlawed. The best solution is not use credit cards at all but if you have to use the card make sure you pay it off at the end of the month. Don't give the banks that interest cash!

That man feeding the hot dogs to the raccoons looked so happy! Also, it's ridiculous people have to pay for bankruptcy. I think Warren's bill sounds great-- better than what we have going on right now. I believe the stigma around bankruptcy stems from the belief we shouldn't get help from the government. So to combat the stigma around bankruptcy, we need to accept that it's okay to get help. Sadly, not everyone has done that yet, and even I have to remind myself I need help sometimes, but if we confront the stereotypes, we can change more people's minds.

Honestly couldn't relate to the student debt, Canada for a bachelors degree in Ottawa its about 40k, 10k ishh a year if you live with parents. OSAP essentially gives it all to you, and 4k is a bursary. They have found some decent stats that showed for every dollar spent they get n more dollars back into the economy, when tax money pays for higher education. As much as the gov here is slow gotta appreciate what you have sometimes.

I'm Canadian and any other Canadians were getting war flashbacks from the horrors when Kevin O'Leary tried to run for the national leadership of the Conservative Party as a Trump like candidate and it looked like he might've gotten it if he didn't drop out? Also, my mom went bankrupt when I was 2 in 1996 when my dad took everything from her and she still doesn't have the credit to get a mortgage for a house. But for the most part she's recovered well and her credit score is okay.

I will say that the Credit Counseling Course I sought out (not required to take) was extremely helpful. They got my payments down to a single, manageable monthly payment, they provided me the actual TEXT BOOK (minus cost of s&h) and I learned a duck-ton of info on credit cards, credit scores, student loans, personal loans, and even things that as a millennial I have no interest in like mortgages. Then when I completed the course I kept my payments, they got two of my creditors to discharge my debt completely, added a note to my report that I passed the course and I am now well on my way to rebuilding my score. Last but not least Elizabeth Warren had my vote before she ran for any office. I was ecstatic when she became one of my Senators and over-joyed when she decided to run for President. I saw her in the documentary "Maxed Out" as the Harvard Law Professor and she instantly won me over. I have been following her ever since.

Loveya John... I'm curious to know what percentage of bankruptcies are people just being irresponsible? Because it seems to me that when we think of people claiming bankruptcy we tend to think of people being irresponsible. Lucky for me I live in Canada where we don't have to worry so much about medical bills.

Things are no different in Canada. Just different name. I had to file after my house burned down. My ex, with whom I’d shared 50/50 custody of our children, saw the loss of my house an an opportunity to try and strong-arm the children away from me. She bought a house in a city 5 hours away and moved our children there. I had to fight her 2 years in court not to lose my kids, all while trying to put our lives together. We lived in our rebuilt home less than a year before I defaulted on my house payments. 2 years later I lost my job, during Covid, and I haven’t been able to find work since. Now my “chapter 13” (called differently here) will likely turn in a “chapter 7”. Had I just filed chapter 7 from the start, I’d be clear by now. But because I was making “good money” prior to losing my job, I was told I was too “wealthy” to file. 🤦🏻‍♂️

I worked at an American bank. I talked to people every single day going bankrupt. I also talked to people every single day BEGGING for money for medical bills. Often these people were insured with ridiculous exclusions or policy loopholes. Here's a 100% true story. This guy had a promo for 0% interest on a card. He took the $50,000 cash and invested it in some investment vehicle like a bond with low risk but he'd profit a bit from it. He was in a car accident and slipped into a coma for 2 months. He missed 2 payments and triggered a rate change from 0% to 29.99% retroactive to the beginning of the loan. 50k @ 29.99% retro for 18 months. Roughly $27,000 in interest.
