I wouldn't want people to go all the way through life without ever having been poor. For some people born into rich families, this is a danger. University student days are an opportunity to experience being poor for a while, in a way that is safe and educational.

The point of this video is that I think that rich parents who give their children so much money to live on when they are at university, that those children don't have to budget, make decisions, examine values, become resourceful, are not doing their children or society any favours. To go through the whole of one's life never having known what it is to have to choose between a luxury and a necessity is a life half-lived. I am NOT making any comment on government spending on education. Nor am I talking about genuinely very poor people with no 'safety net'.
