    On today’s episode of Double Down, hosts Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert are joined by Elizabeth Mizon of TheCanary.co to discuss the escalating and confusing higher education costs at a time when even the IMF admits neoliberalism is ‘oversold.’

    George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, says ‘We’re all in this together,” but is the neoliberal claw telling a more disconcerting truth: that the population is being made to pay many times over through overly-complex financial contracts in place of services the government and society used to provide for free? Double Down talks to independent journalist, Elizabeth Mizon of TheCanary.do to discuss the viral student letter that set off a quest to understand the student debt complex.
