    market truth telling

    I'm not sure what the following in red is saying.

    No surprise that, with tuition debt reaching $1 trillion, one of the complaints of younger Occupy Wall Street protestors was student loan crisis. They have a point. Loose money corrupts more than market truth telling. What kind of society sells a lifelong burden of indebtedness to people inexperienced with money who are at the beginning of their working lives?

    Thank you.

    I think there should be an 'is' after 'market truth'.
    Loose money corrupts more than market truth is telling.

    Loose money refers to the readily loans that are being given out to students. Loans were given out to students without them being well informed (about the truth and the implications) about the lifelong burden and indebtedness they would have to carry.

    No.

    "Truth telling" is a concept here.

    Loose money makes the market lie (i.e. not engage in "truth telling") and it corrupts lenders who sucker students into large loans for useless degrees.
