That the government’s use of resources does deprive consumers of some goods is true but beside the point because consumers implicitly but very definitely indicate how they feel about this foregone consumption through the rate of return they are currently providing to business firms. And the costs of taxation versus borrowing are considerations relevant to the choice of strategy of stabilization policy. 3 In addition, the proposed calculation has significant consequences for public policy, via its implication that, with a 5 per cent rate of interest on government bonds for the relevant time period, the correct rate of discount on government projects is not anything near 5 per cent but is on the order of 10 per cent per annum.
