The Economic Adviser To The Prime Minister Shows Options For Future Budgets

Sunday 27, September 2020  Economical Views: 290   Baghdad / NINA / The Economic Adviser to the Prime Minister, Mazhar Muhammad Salih, said: “The options for future budgets … are limited to a planned balance when actual revenues are achieved that disavow borrowing, or an actual deficit when borrowing as a deficit financier is realized.”

He said in a statement to the Iraqi National News Agency ( NINA ): “Any budget that is based on a (actual deficit) in public revenues as a result of exceeding public expenditures requires financing for that deficit, and traditionally the deficit is only financed by borrowing or borrowing, whether borrowing from home or abroad.” .

Saleh added: “In the event that a deficit budget is approved and there is an improvement in revenues such as high oil prices or unexpected revenues, here the deficit will be hypothetical and not arrange a public debt.”

He pointed out that: “If the public finances are unable to finance the actual deficit in the general budget, despite the existence of an allocation, then this leads to an automatic austerity budget, a decrease in public spending, and the deletion of many spending goals. Here, an unplanned balance can occur in the budget.”

Saleh added, “The options now are either a planned balance when actual revenues are achieved that excludes borrowing, or an actual deficit when borrowing is realized as a financier of the deficit or no borrowing occurs, and then the actual spending is equal to the actual revenue, which is a state of austerity imposed on the fiscal policy.”
