.Report: Banks’ Lending Frenzy Left Borrowers Buried in Student Debt

Much like the mortgage market, the market for private student loans has gone through a big boom and a messy bust. Some banks and lenders played fast and loose with student loans, aggressively marketing them to borrowers who couldn’t afford that amount of debt, according to a recent government report. “Borrowers who took out loans at the height of the boom are still suffering from those excesses,” said Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray in remarks to reporters recently. The report, released jointly by the U.S. Department of Education and the CFPB, is the government’s first major study of the murky private student loan market, for which there has long been little regulation or reliable data.
