Is It Getting Too Expensive To Go College?

Hedge-fund manager and author James Altucher says he will not be sending his kids to college. See Rethinking College as Student-Loan Burdens Rise. This link has both an article and a video clip. (Hat Tip: Frances Minten)

But remember that on average, college grad makes about 75% more a year than someone who only has a high school diploma. So let's say that if a high school grad makes $24,000 a year then the college grad is making $42,000. That is an extra $18,000 a year and it won't take long to make up for the $100,000 average cost of going to college.
