U.S. Treasury Taxing Department of Education

  1. Taxation: Similar to the World Bank, the U.S. Treasury can provide no-interest loans to foreign governments. However, "the U.S. Treasury currently charges interest to the U.S. Department of Education to disperse direct loans" (Shireman 2004). In summary, the U.S. Treasury charges interest to the U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of Education charges interest to students, and all of that interest returns to the U.S. Treasury.
