The National Bureau of Economic Research recently distributed a working paper "Second Chance: Life without Student Debt," co-authored by Vega academic expert Dr. Marco Di Maggio, an Associate Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School. This new study offers insight into what happens when borrowers' student loan debt is cancelled, concluding that cancelling student loans frees up borrowers to make decisions that improve their financial lives.

Dr. Di Maggio's current research focuses on financial intermediation, including studies at the intersection of macroeconomics and finance. Vega has worked with Dr. Di Maggio on projects involving consumer loans and related finance issues.
