Student Debt Won't Keep Millennials From Buying Cars and Homes, Study Says

Given growing levels of student debt combined with stagnant incomes over the past few decades, “something has to give somewhere,” said Mark Huelsman, a senior policy analyst at Demos, a left-leaning think tank. Research from his firm shows that a dual-income household with average levels of student debt for bachelor’s degree recipients stands to lose more than $200,000 over a lifetime, mostly due to lost retirement savings.
“It’s pretty clear that student debt is having some impact on the ability of families to build wealth or to save,” Huelsman said.
