It depends upon what you are going into debt for. The doctor profiled in that story is grossing $200K per year. $100k in debt can be knocked down without much pain in about three to five years at that level of earnings. However, going in $150K in debt to get a MFA or even a law degree is not necessarily a wise investment. Education is a means to an ends, not a end unto itself.
Education is an end in itself. It doesn't have to be a "money-maker" to have value.Unfortunately, Spencer and his followers value ignorance. It costs nothing and is worth even less.
Why isn't a law degree a good investment? It sure IS if you study hard to stay in the top 10% and then be a member of law review. Right out of school you get $120K at a large firm. Sounds like a good investment to me.
