Canada's Economic Action Plan Government Debt: Reduced Public DebtIs it fair to spend today and leave the debt in the hands of future generations? Government Debts include: all future government liabilities, such as pension payments, that the government has contractually agreed to, but not yet paid. While these are certainly a form of debt, we choose to classify them separately as unfunded liabilities. In multiple ways, these unfunded liabilities present a greater burden to future generations than all government debt combined. The Interest Rate TrapAs a governments national debt increases over time, so does the interest payments needed to service the debt. The increased money needed to pay interest on the debt makes it even harder for a government to raise enough revenues to meet their expenditures. This problem leads to more borrowing, greater amounts of debt and even higher interest payments. This compounding cycle continues until a government manages to balance its budget or defaults on its financial obligations. To comprehend the size of the problem here in Canada, consider the fact that our federal government alone spends over $30 billion a year on interest payments. $30 Billion. The Canadian government spends more to simply maintain our current levels of debt each year. Previous generations have expanded entitlements without paying for them, and are now leaving future generations with the bill.
