U.S. Expected To Forgive At Least $108 Billion In Student Debt

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 16:29:00 -0500

A report released Wednesday by the Government Accountability Office says the U.S. is on track to forgive at least $108 billion in student debt. This is due to the number of people who have enrolled in plans the Obama administration promoted to help borrowers avoid default. The GAO report finds the Education Department also understated the cost of these plans. NPR's Ari Shapiro talks to Danielle Douglas-Gabriel of The Washington Post.

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 16:29:00 -0500

Carrier says it will keep about 1,000 jobs in Indiana instead of shifting production to Mexico. Donald Trump repeatedly singled out Carrier during his campaign and made stopping the move a priority.

Texas, Oklahoma Divided Over How To Handle Earthquakes Linked To Oil Drilling

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 16:22:00 -0500

Oklahoma and Texas have been experiencing a rash of human-caused earthquakes. It happens when oil and gas wastewater gets pumped underground in the wrong places and disrupts faults. Oklahoma officials have cracked down on wastewater injection; Texas is apparently uninterested in doing much. That could mean a lot more quakes given that the country's biggest oil reservoir has just been discovered in west Texas.
