Facing Down Debt
Trying buying a house today at 1985 prices. Or a car, for that matter… both have gotten considerably more expensive over the years.
But in that same 30-year period, real wages have been generally stagnant.

A conference on the subject, "Up From Debt," comes to several locations next Saturday (March 14).
In Ashland, there'll be a particular emphasis on student debt. We hear from some of the organizers.
