The Rising College Tuition Statistics: Potential Causes and Solutions

Rising College Tuition Statistics

The first trimester of 2015 brings with it bad news for the ever-delicate problem of rising college tuition statistics. Unlike the more socially-oriented education system of European countries, the American higher education landscape has always been marked by the struggle of large tuition costs and, in the past few years, by the even worsening state of things via the rise of these costs. According to the latest college tuition statistics, the class graduating from America’s colleges in 2014 was the most indebted in the country’s history: the average graduate who attended classes via a student loan owed a whooping amount of $33,000 at graduation. Moreover, the average cost for tuition, room and board per year, in a four-year program at a private institution is currently situated at $42,419, and the prices continue to rise. It is estimated that over 50 American schools are even charging more than $60,000 per year for their education services. Read more ›

March Employment Report Reveals a Halt in Job Growth

March Employment Report

If news from the U.S. economy encouraged a pretty optimistic view of job growth in our employment market during the previous to the month of March 2015, when more than 200,000 new jobs were added to the economy every month, the latest government March employment report was rather disappointing. The most recent employment data revealed some pretty disappointing figures: only 126,000 jobs were added to the job market during the past month. This news came right after prominent economists predicted around 245,000 jobs would be created during the month. The government report reveals that the outcome they predicted was pretty far from the truth. Is this a serious halt in the employment growth? Many experts think so, hinting that the national economy may take a turn for the worse. Some media voices feel the need to emphasize the dramatic nature of this slight downturn and are predicting dark times to come for our job market. Let’s explore the facts and figures and see where the truth lies. We’ll determine whether or not this piece of recent employment news should be a cause of serious concern. Read more ›

BNP Paribas Controversial Full Employment Claim On US Employment Rate

BNP Paribas

After releasing February’s job report (the latest, therefore), the economists at BNP Paribas have declared that our economy has reached the state of “full employment”. This notion of maximum employment would translate as being at the lowest rate of unemployment that the U.S. economy can tolerate; and moreover, it would mean that the reasons for the remaining unemployment are independent of the existing demand. Basically, to put it simply, it would mean that the remaining unemployed people are out of the job because they don’t want to work or can’t, not because there is any unmet demand for work they haven’t connected to yet. The economy has already filled out all the uncovered jobs and all that remains is a low unemployment rate made out of people who simply don’t want to work or can’t work and so on. Read more ›
