Am I The Only One That Hates Thiel’s GOTY?

I see a comparison of an aggregate with an average and I get annoyed. I’m not disputing the point so much, really, but I feel like this is contrived to give us a hockey stick shape to freak out about.

Maybe the conclusion wouldn’t change comparing average to average. Maybe the data isn’t available to do an average of student debt among graduates.

But surely some acknowledgment that there probably more students every year is in order here.
