People in the replies are slamming this guy for spending $137k on a sociology degree.

True, probably not the best financial decision.

But no one is asking why someone is able to take out $137k in student loans when *everyone* knows it’ll be impossible to pay it back
There’s nobody in the entire process incentivized in any way to say, “You know this will ruin you forever, right?”
A really basic model would spit out, “There’s a 95%+ chance the person taking out this loan will never be able to pay it off.”

Maybe we should reconsider the government subsidizing loans in that case?

Policies designed to help people are damning them financially.
