Student debt is resulting in fewer home sales, according to a new study -- up to $83 billion per year in lost volume

    It's both... but yes, Viva is closer to the truth.

    There is no way that over-regulation is the problem. Every single friend I know who has to live with their parents, move in with a sub-lease or seek a life in a small apartment do so not because of the 'Nanny State', but because of relative poverty. Our wages are too low and our college dreams were just that: illusions that a degree leads quickly to high wages.

    Perhaps it will take time. I do not despair yet. Hard work may still pay off (I sincerely hope it does, thought networking and good connections seem to matter more than work ethic).

    But to pretend that the government is the problem instead of [student debt low wages] is farcical.
