18. The recession of the '90s was over by March 1991, it lasted only 8 months. It was followed by....

....the longest period of economic growth in American history up to that time, including wage growth. Those who graduated in the early 90s entered the job market during a boom economy, not a recession.

Getting back to my point, if a person got a college degree in 1990 (average tuition was somewhere around $7-8K back then, lower at public colleges) yet hasn't been able to pay off his/her student debt after 31 years, what was the point in getting a college degree in the first place?
