Most current (or recently graduated) college students are familiar with several of the methods that can be used to finance a college education. The most preferred options are college savings programs (529 plans), grants and scholarships, because they do not have to be paid back. Secondly most-preferred are government loans, which have lower interest rates compared to other loans. Once those avenues are exhausted, however, it is up to the students and their families to find other alternatives. Traditionally, this would mean that students (or their families) might resort to taking out private loans with higher rates than those offered by the government. But what if there was another funding method to consider – one that relied more directly on the quantifiable expected return of the education being pursued?
A decade ago, autonomous vehicles (AVs) seemed
like a futuristic gimmick, out of reach.
Today, however – although the word “autonomous” might
suggest otherwise – most people drive some sort of AV. Various rate filings, both for commercial and
private passenger auto, give an idea of how autonomous vehicles are being
priced with regard to insurance. Although rate filings do not exist for fully
autonomous vehicles, many filings offer discounts for having an
autonomous feature attached to the vehicle.
This raises the question – would fully
autonomous vehicles be even more cost-effective with regard to insurance?
At least two
things came to fruition from the 1960s science fiction TV shows many of us watched
as children. First, as the title of this blog suggests, it is now acceptable to
split an infinitive (that is, insert an adverb between the word “to” and the
verb). Second, although we still don’t have flying cars, it is possible to conduct
meetings and converse with people miles away while looking at a screen. This
came in quite handy as we planned our 2021 Pinnacle University program.
