    The idea of a student loan-type scheme is expected to be a win-win for businesses and the Government

    The idea of a student loan-type scheme is expected to be a win-win for businesses and the Government


    Treasury's being asked to introduce it to help companies get through the economic impact of Covid-19.

    The idea's come from Cognitus Economic Insight principal economist, Richard Meade.

    He says the Government would have about 14 percent less debt, if the scheme was put in place.

    However, Meade says the level of support is about two and a half times higher than the wage subsidy.
