Paul Solman frequently answers questions from the NewsHour audience on business and economic news on his Making Sen$e page. Here is Thursday’s query:

Susan Schrank: Judy Woodruff mentioned a new student loan repayment program and said we could find information about it on your Making Sense page. Can you direct me to it?

Making Sense

Paul Solman: Here is Elizabeth Shell’s comprehensive assembly of Making Sen$e reporting we’ve done on the student loan issue over the past year or so. She’s put together enough to keep you reading and watching for a while. As for specific assistance on repayment programs, you might start with this one. There are other programs specific to federal employees and the military.

As usual, look for a second post early this afternoon. But please don’t blame us if events or technology make that impossible. Meanwhile, let it be known that this entry is cross-posted on the Making Sen$e page, where correspondent Paul Solman answers your economic and business questions
