a matter of perspective: student loans

Must have been fun to hear Sec'y. Spellings' chat at the Press Club on Thursday. Evidently she and Sen. Clinton view the student loan industry's relationship with the current administration from different perspectives. The Chronicle of Higher Ed offers this on its News Blog. Clinton has been sharply critical of the student loan industry and introduced legislation last session addressing the scandal. She's also made it part of her education talking points, folding criticism of the loan industry with a call for better access and more affordability. Spellings evidently does not share her view and defended her department's oversight and investigation into allegations of abuse. When they see it, they investigate it.

Everyone in this world dreams of having a house of his own. A house with all comforts and luxury also reflects one’s status in the society. Many of us never fulfill such dreams just because we lack in sufficient finance but with the advent of home improvement loans without any security the task has become very simple and affordable. These loans are available without keeping any collateral; hence any one with or without any asset can go for it. These loans are especially designed for tenants who either don’t have any asset to keep as collateral or don’t want to risk them. You can borrow such loans for home expansion, renovation, refurnishing, remodelling etc.For more information log on
