Apparently, Gr¨ uske is aware of this problem since he writes with regard to his approach: “In order to determine the real growth rates which are at least required so that graduates pay back the received benefits through their university-related contributions, a dynamic approach is calculated for the group with the smallest net benefits: economists and social scientists. Thus, at least an unrealistic 5% real growth per year is required so that the graduates of these groups finance their received benefits by themselves” (Gr¨ uske, 1994, p.

C) The way of adding the repayments is problematic from a tax-systematic point of view. Gr¨ uske attempts to determine whether academics pay back the costs of their degree. Thus, received benefits are understood to be credits, and the repayment is determined by the general tax liability. As a consequence, a part of the tax payments is not declared as such (since it is a loan or credit repayment). This violates both, the principle of non-affectation and, through the linkage of received benefits and tax burden, also the ability-to-pay principle which only aims at the revenue side of the budget.
