He points out that the Higher Education Contribution Schemes (HECS) and compulsory occupational superannuation reduce the capacity of young households to purchase housing but then backs away from the logic of his own argument when he says; "Identifying these aspects of public policy should not necessarily be seen as an argument against HECS or compulsory occupational superannuation (p.
This reflected over-enrolments on the part of universities (that is enrolments above the allocated number of funded HECS places--for which universities received relatively low financial compensation).

The most notable changes are the continued growth in the proportion of the public expenditures funded through HECS and the expansion in fee paying overseas students and Australian students in postgraduate courses.
The primary objective of HECS was to allow the higher education sector to expand without a substantial growth in government funding.
exports of HECS to Mexico have been shut down for 15 months.
