Class Seven -- Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Original Creator: Howell E. Jackson Current Version: Howell E. Jackson Show/Hide

Today's class will focus primarily on the student loan exercise. Start by reading the exercise itself and then work through background materials included in the student debt exercise playlist. Please read the background materials for this problem carefully. All students enrolled in the course should submit a 1000 word reaction paper on this exercise by 8:00 am of the morning of January 12th. In preparation for working on this reaction paper, you should read the briefing paper on federal credit programs.

Additional background materials on accounting presentations are also included, but these are optional and will be discussed later in the course in any event. You do not need to read these materials in order to complete the student loan exercise.

        Read over materials on FEMA Recoupment. Why are members of Congress from New York and New Jersey upset with FEMA's practices with respect to the recoupment of overpayments? Should agencies like FEMA have more latitude to forgive debts? We will be revisiting this topic at the beginning of the second week of class when we discuss the Department of Education's ability to forgive student loan debt.
