Econintersect:  Three journalism students at Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism have created a documentary that investigates the individual, institutional and societal aspects of the U.S. student loan system for financing higher education.  The film is titled "Scholarslip: A documentary about the student debt crisis", created by JAT Productions (Alex Lancial, Tara Molina and Jake Stein) and explores five critical issues: (1) increasing costs of tuition; (2) deteriorating quality of higher education; (3) diminishing value of a college degree in the job market; (4) student dependence on state and federal financial assistance; and (5) the effects on personal lives and aspirations.
