The initial response to “Borrowing Against Our Future” has made all our work on the report and this site well worth it.  We’ve received more messages of appreciation and congratulations than we can count from professors, activists, think tank leaders, elected officials, and even a former Department of Education undersecretary.

The response on social media is even more encouraging.  On Facebook, twenty-six hundred people have liked The Nation’s article explaining how students pay for the $45 billion in annual higher education financing costs uncovered in”Borrowing Against the Future.”

The most exciting development, however, is that we’ve received several emails submitting articles and proposing blog posts for us to publish.  This is exactly in line with our hope that Debt and Society will be a place for broad academic and popular discussion of debt and financialization.

We won’t be able to review submissions or post more on the blog until I return next Monday from vacation.  But if you have something you’d like to submit or recommend to us, please email us through the contact page or comment on this blog post.

In the meantime, thank you for your interest and for helping spread the news about Debt and Society!
