Anyone know where I can find either any articles or recorded shiurim by Rav Schachter on the kollel system and his opinions of it?

Can you define the Kollel System and what aspect of it you want his opinion of? – Double AA Feb 11 '14 at 20:14
The current kollel institution in both America and Israel in which people are payed by others to learn indefinitely. – WhoKnows Feb 11 '14 at 20:16
You should always include relevant information in your question, not in the comments... – Double AA Feb 11 '14 at 20:17
This appears to be the only recording on YU Torah that might possibly address this question: yutorah.org/lectures/lecture.cfm/809040/Rabbi_Hershel_Schachter/… – Shmuel Apr 14 '14 at 5:48
If I remember correctly in his article in Mishpacha Magazine a few years back he discussed the kollel system and what RYBS opinion was or what he didn't imagine it would become – Mefaresh May 28 '15 at 18:30
