Abstract

This Kelso Institute policy paper provides details and discussion about how student loan debt can be repaid by the Kelso financing technique of “future returns investment.” This proposal, applied to the U.S., is called the Youth Education Security (YES) Fund, and it will cost both the federal government and students a fraction of the Biden administration’s SAVE plan, and students’ loan obligations would be paid off in half the time.
