That lead led to the housing prices so are we headed towards -- student loan bubble as well.
Joining us out -- eight EI resident fell out with more to talk about this.

That is precisely.
The interaction of credit and prices.
Which goes to make up -- bubble or an unsustainable.
As you push credit and the sector or make it very easy to get a loan.
People spending the money drive the prices are up.
The prices going higher makes people feel like they have to borrow more about makes the prices go higher.
As you suggest that's -- really interest in parallel.
Between what happened with house prices and mortgage credit.

My idea is the colleges should have been serious.
Portion of the risk of non payment of student loans maybe 20%.
Buy -- -- by class so that they have a an incentive.
To make good loans to keep down their costs -- the loans are productive and to make sure the students are really learning something which will.
