LIVE STUDENT DEBT TOTAL

MarketWatch, a stock market tracker published by Dow Jones & Co., released a “ticker” that calculates the current total of student debt in America. The author of this calculator, Jillian Berman, said that the total student loan debt grows by an estimated $2,726.27 per second.

She compared the growth in student loan debt to a ticking time bomb ready to blow up the U.S. economy.

“Now you can watch it tick,” she said.
