The notion that university students should pay for their education through a graduate tax is generally seen as a left-wing idea.

Yet it isn’t a million miles away from Milton Friedman’s suggestion that people finance investment in their human capital (ie, their studies)  by selling shares in themselves (ie, in their future income).

In the case of the graduate tax, the shareholder would be the government.
