Austerity Sledgehammer: At Least Half a Million College Students On Waiting Lists as Loans Dry Up; Colleges Face Mass Layoffs

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

Austerity measures, though unpopular and not discussed by government officials and media pundits, are in full effect across a broad spectrum of services and industries.

In many parts of the country local governments are being forced to layoff or cut the salaries of thousands of emergency personnel. Education spending cuts across debt behemoths like California, Illionois and Michigan are forcing elementary and high school classrooms to capacities exceeding thirty or forty students at a time and removing subjects like art, music and physical education from school schedules.  Towns and cities all over America are declaring bankruptcy on an almost weekly basis.

    This is truely the results of thirty years of deflationary pressures coming to fruition.The only reason it is manifesting it’s self now is that since the early 1980′s when industry started shutting down in the US, it then relocated overseas.As the tax base shrank and wages depressed/cut/disappeared, Governments, i.e. State,Federal began to barrow more & More money to makeup the short falls in tax collections with the borrowing accelerating since that time.Now, the borrowing has dried up since the tax base is shrinking and wages are dropping and Gov can not go to the well anymore, the jig is up. People nor the Gov can maintain their standard of living off of a credit card indefinately.So now they are forced to do what they should have been doing all along, cut costs instead of living off of borrowed money.
