Resource description

This paper discusses how to construct student loans to ensure that, for the most part, they count as private spending. Though the specifics relate to the finance of higher education, the issue has much wider ramifications for flexible combinations of public and private activity, for example in financing public transport, paying for infrastructure, and the like. The opening section explains the issue, section 2 justifies the specific loan proposal and section 3 discusses ways of ensuring that the scheme is classified as private.
