Abstract: This paper describes a quasi-experiment with Congressional budgeting.
Results are consistent with the behavioral finding that salience of information in a
decision process often dominates its functional relevance. Specifically, I observe
two periods with radically different budgetary accounting for federal credit
assistance. In both periods, authoritative measures of costs are provided to
policymakers in highly salient form at key points of legislative decision. In the first
period, the estimate of opportunity cost is largely “noise,” with scant relevance to
the value of scarce fiscal resources consumed by the decision. By contrast, the
cost measure in the second period is a much closer approximation of total costs.
In both periods, minimization of cost, as measured, is strongly evident in
decisions. One implication for budget reform is that more functionally relevant,
salient measures of cost can improve the performance of public budgeting.
Timely introduction and maintenance of those measures, however, likely requires
an independent budgetary accounting authority.

INTRODUCTION

The current federal budget process–characterized by an unsustainable federal
debt trajectory, frequent lapses in budget adoption, inefficient and ineffective
program selection, a significant risk of annual government shutdowns, and a debt
ceiling more likely to produce default than fiscal stability–is widely regarded as
dysfunctional and in need of reform.2 Nonetheless, the existing process does
succeed in one important respect: it nudges policymakers to minimize the
reported budget cost of new legislation, conditional on addressing policy
objectives. This paper focuses on that success because it suggests a path to more
general, likely effective reforms.
The otherwise “broken” process promotes management of reported budget cost
by rendering cost estimates for new legislation highly salient at key legislative
points of decision.3 This process feature is a legacy of the Congressional Budget
Act of 1974 [CBA] ,4 [Sec .202] which directs the Congressional Budget Office
(CBO) to provide all information to the Congress that would assist in carrying out
the budgeting function. Accordingly, CBO releases a cost estimate for every bill
reported out of an authorizing committee. Congress–often indifferent to other
features of the CBA–has embraced fully the concept of cost minimization, given
its legislative policy objectives and current budgetary accounting.5 Members and
their staff often consult with CBO analysts to assure a minimum budget cost when
drafting legislation.

CREDIT ACCOUNTING: REGIME I

The power of salient cost information in affecting policy decisions is especially
evident in federal credit programs—direct and federally-guaranteed lending–
which have been subjected to significantly different budgetary accounting, or
“scoring” regimes, in the period since 1974. The first of those was a simple cash
flow measure: the effect of new loans on cash flows to and from the federal
government by budget year. Under that accounting, a $100 direct loan was shown
as increasing budget outlays and the deficit by $100 in the budget year the loan
was disbursed. In subsequent fiscal years, cash inflows were recorded when
repayments were received–or expected, for outyear budget projections. By
contrast, no federal cash flows were recognized at disbursement for federally
guaranteed loans advanced by third party, non-federal lenders. New guarantees
were “free” in reported budget cost until borrowers defaulted and the
government reimbursed lenders for losses. This accounting violated long-standing
budgetary accounting theory which holds that the total cost of a legislative or
other scorable action should be shown in the budget up-front, when the decision
is made to incur that cost (e.g. Office of Management and Budget. 2017)
For elected officials seeking to minimize the cost of credit assistance, the choice
between a direct loan and a guaranteed loan on the same terms to the same
borrowers was easy under cash flow accounting: the initial budget price was
either zero for a guarantee or the full amount of the loan for direct lending. In
fact, if the government collected an up-front guarantee fee, the budget year cost
was negative, indicating an inflow of fiscal resources, even if subsequent losses
were expected to exceed the fee. Similarly, Congress could score budget “savings”
5 An enduring Congressional proclivity for minimizing scored budget cost is documented in Meyers (1994) to pay-for other legislation by pairing a desired, but costly, policy proposal with
legislation to convert an existing direct loan program to a guarantee.
The effect on policy choice of the difference in cost estimates for equivalent
direct and guaranteed loans was dramatic (Figure 1). Specifically, the dollar
volume of new direct loans as a percent of the volume of new guarantees
declined from a peak of 80% in fiscal 1979 to 7% in 1992.
Congress made those policy choices even though it was aware that the cash-basis
cost measure was a poor proxy for fiscal cost and heavily biased toward
guarantees. For example, the 1967 Report (Ch.5) of the President Commission on
Budget Concepts had proposed changing the budgetary treatment of direct loans
to report long-term subsidy cost rather than annual cash flows. Further, the
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Reaffirmation Act of 1987
directed the CBO to study and report recommendations for more accurately
measuring the cost of credit programs. Nonetheless, the salience of the cost
measure dominated its functional irrelevance in decisions.

CREDIT ACCOUNTING: REGIME II

CBO (1989) recommended that Congress adopt the expected, present value, longterm
loss on both loans and guarantees as the budget subsidy cost for credit
programs. It also recommended that this cost be appropriated before the loan
was obligated and recognized in budget outlays and the deficit when the loan was
disbursed. One objective of the reform was to assure that loans on the same
terms to the same borrowers would have comparable (equal) cost whether the
funds were advanced by the government or by a non-federal lender whose cost
recovery was guaranteed by the federal government (Phaup. 1985). Subsidy costs
were expected to be less than the amount advanced, unless the loan was a grant,
miscategorized as a loan (CBO 1991). Similarly, subsidy costs were expected to be
greater than zero, unless the loan was riskless and hence readily financed without
a federal guarantee by a private lender.
Congress enacted the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990 (FCRA) as a part of the
Budget Enforcement Act of 1990. The budgetary cost of federal credit programs
specified in FCRA stopped short of the long-term loss recommended by CBO. It
differed from CBO’s recommendation by excluding two components of total cost.
The first, administrative costs, including loan servicing costs, were omitted to
avoid advance appropriation of wages, salaries and other operating expenses.
Second, the cost of market risk was excluded from subsidy cost, by mandating
that projected future cash flows from federal credit transactions be converted to
present values using interest rates on low risk Treasury securities of the same
maturity.6 Those omissions reduced average measured budget costs for credit by
5 – 10 percent of the amount loaned. (CBO. 2012, 2018).
FCRA corrected the bogus cost advantage of guarantees over direct loans, but
also changed fundamentally the legislative strategy for minimizing budget cost.
Instead of using loan guarantees rather than direct loans, policy makers and
analysts now had to consider the causal drivers of subsidy costs: fees and interest
rates charged borrowers; the frequency and severity of default; and the
government’s debt collection practices.
Figure 2 shows the distribution of initial estimates of subsidy rates for individual
direct loan programs for fiscal 1993. The federal policy portfolio consisted of 39
active direct loan programs, with a mean subsidy rate of about 23 percent, and
most rates clustered between 0 and 30 percent. Nine programs had subsidy rates
of 40 percent or higher.7

The new budgetary accounting for credit programs neither reduced the salience
of cost estimates nor diminished Congressional interest in minimizing reported
cost. Rather, the new practice of reporting subsidy rates as a percent of the
amount loaned by individual program heighten the visibility and importance of
cost estimates for federal credit policies.
Accordingly, with time and experience, Congress adapted to the new scoring by
increasing the use of direct loan programs and structuring legislation to reduce
net expected credit losses. By FY 2015, they had increased the number of direct
loan programs from 39 to 56 and reduced the mean program subsidy rate from 23
percent to 9 percent (Figure 3). Even more remarkably, Congress had succeeded
in “doing well, while doing good:” 25 direct loan programs reported negative
budget subsidy rates.8

The shift to negative rates transformed federal credit activity from costly to a net
source of fiscal resources that could be used to pay for other spending. For FY
2018, more than $600 billion in new direct loans and guarantees reported a net
budget gain of about $9 billion. 9

SPECIFIC POLICY ADJUSTMENTS UNDER REGIME II

Policymakers responded to the new scoring rule quickly. The George H. W. Bush
Administration proposed and secured a direct student loan demonstration project
in FY 1992, the first year FCRA became effective.10 President Clinton then
endorsed and signed into law—primarily on grounds of deficit reduction—the
Federal Direct Loan Program of 1993 whose estimated FRCA subsidy rate was
about half the rate for guaranteed student loans.11 To assure budget savings were
reflected in the cost estimate, the new legislation authorized the Secretary of
Education to require participating schools to switch from high cost guaranteed to
lower cost direct loans until 60 percent of new student loans were direct.
(McCann. 2010)12
In the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 (DCIA), policymakers took steps
to reduce the subsidy cost of all federal-assisted credit by:

  • Barring the extension of new federal credit to borrowers who were more
    than 180 days delinquent on an existing federal direct or guaranteed loan;
  • Centralizing collection of defaulted loans in the US Treasury; and
  • Authorizing “offset” (collection) of non-tax debts owed the government
    including interest and penalties through reductions in amounts paid to
    defaulting borrowers for federal salaries, tax refunds, and Social Security
    benefits.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 included a policy change aimed at reducing subsidy
costs for a specific credit program. Section 1703, Title XVII of the Act authorized
the Secretary of Energy to issue loan guarantees for projects that employ
innovative technologies at a fee set equal to the estimated subsidy cost of the
loan. This authority enables the Department to provide credit on below market
terms for target projects at a budget cost of zero.13
Reductions in credit subsidy costs were also used to pay for expansions of noncredit
spending. Examples include:

  • The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 was credited with
    5-year savings of $28 billion ($61 billion over 10-years) for a provision
    terminating the federal guaranteed student loan program and shifting all
    new federal student loans to the direct program, effective July 1, 2010.14
  • An increase in premiums and fees for federal mortgage guarantees offset
    $16.7 billion (5-year) and $35.7 billion (10-year) of the cost of extending a
    temporary payroll tax reduction, unemployment compensation, and
    deferral of a reduction in Medicare physician payments for one year,
    2012.15
  • The Budget Control Act of 2011, which established caps on discretionary
    spending through 2021 and created the failed Joint Select Committee on
    Deficit Reduction, also included an increase in federal Pell grant funding of
    $17 billion for FY 2012 and 2013. That increase was paid for ($9.6 billion
    over 5-years; $21.7 over 10-years) by two changes in the direct student
    loan program. The first changed a subsidized graduate student loan
    program into an unsubsidized, negative cost program by eliminating
    interest subsidies for in-school, post-school grace, and deferment periods.
    The second effectively raised origination fees for all students.16

 

SUCCESS! With Flies in the Ointment

On the face of it, FCRA looks to have been an unusually successful intervention in
a decision process. On closer examination, several flaws in the new accounting
regime sully the luster of achievement. First, as noted, the enacted measure of
subsidy cost omits some components of social cost so that budget costs
understate total costs on average by 5 – 10 percent of the amount loaned. This
understatement accounts for most of the negative subsidy rates reported by
credit programs under FCRA accounting. Moreover, the existence of “profitable”
credit assistance creates incentives for Congress and administering agencies to
increase issuance of loans, beyond the point that would maximize long-term wellbeing
for borrowers. One recent study found this development to be especially
problematic in the case of direct student loans and FHA mortgage guarantees
(Stanton, Rhinesmith, and Easterly. 2017). Direct student loans, with a negative
subsidy rate of 2.8 percent, accounted for over 85 percent of all direct loans
disbursed in FY 2018, while FHA mortgage guarantees–negative subsidy rate of 3
percent– made up nearly 50 percent of all new guarantees.17
Second, FCRA explicitly excluded federal insurance programs from coverage by
the new accounting. Thus, the same distortion of measured budget cost that
drew Members to loan guarantees, remains active for long term insurance in
which premiums are collected when coverage is extended but claims that trigger
outlays are made in future fiscal years. (CBO. 2005) In switching from Regime I to
Regime II, Congress gave up the opportunity to provide “free” loan guarantees
but gained the scoring option of “profitable” lending, while retaining the
favorable budgetary treatment of federal insurance.
Third, federal guarantees and insurance are not the only, nor the largest,
programs that provide benefits now but defer the recognition of cash-flow budget
cost to the distant, optimistically anticipated, heavily discounted future when
effective cost management is politically unfeasible. That distinction goes to social
insurance programs, including Social Security and Medicare.18 The budget costs of
those programs, as well as Federal pensions, other post-employment benefits,
and implied guarantees to government sponsored enterprises, are also almost
impossible to manage because they are recognized only when beneficiaries are
due to receive anticipated payments that they have been encouraged by
policymakers to expect (Phaup. 2009, 2019).

INTERESTING STORY: But Where is the Counter-Factual?

The case for a causal link between accounting and budget and policy choice would
be stronger with a well-specified model of legislative decisions affecting credit
policy that could provide a counter-factual path of “no FCRA treatment.” Absent a
general model–the V.O. Key (1940) lament—the current result may be regarded
as merely suggestive because of possible effects of variables, ignored in this
analysis, on credit policy. In fact, a robust model of budgetary decision-making
still eludes our professional grasp. That analytical gap has significantly retarded
efforts to improve the federal budget process. However, in this case, an inability
to isolate the policy effects of budgetary accounting from other factors is, at
most, a minor obstacle to reform. That is because the proposed accounting
changes are deduced from the objective of meeting user needs for cost
information so that trade-offs can be made with more functionally relevant
information. In that respect, the FCRA reform model is also informative.
Enactment of FCRA was motivated by the goal of improving budget decisions
through increasing the relevance of measured budget cost for credit. Budgeting is
a process of attempted constrained optimization in the face of scarcity. FCRA
simply redefined cost to measure more accurately the value of resources
consumed by specific policies providing credit assistance. The case for change
was developed from the purpose of the supported activity. Subsidy cost is
preferred to short-term cash flow because of its superior ability to inform budget
decisions. The possibility that the change might not improve decisions was and
remains insufficient to reject at least a trial of extending the new accounting
(Manzi. 2012).

IMPLICATIONS for REFORM

Congress is the architect of its budget process and its own budgetary accounting
standard setter. It is also subject to many of the same cognitive limitations as
other individuals and groups (Viscusi and Gayer.2015). Under current practice, we
observe persistent, functionally mis-measured costs, and inefficient program
choice; in behavioral terms: present and status quo biases.
12
An Independent budgetary accounting standards authority could improve policy
by defining cost measures more appropriate to the budget function without
restricting choice or compromising legislative sovereignty, while easing the
cognitive difficulty of the task (Hearn and Phaup. 2016). Consistent with past
practice, such an entity might be described as a permanent “Commission on
Budget Concepts.” Drawing on experience with the Federal Accounting Standards
Advisory Board (FASAB), the Commission would likely be more effective, if it were
a wholly non-federal entity (Patton and Mosso. 2009). That status would require
private funding and the absence of authority to impose its standards on Congress
or any other instrumentality of the federal government. In that case, standards
would be effectuated solely through the Commission’s ability to exert moral
suasion, its technical expertise, its non-partisan nature, and its public standing.19
As unlikely as it might seem, a behaviorally-informed case exists for better living
through better governmental budgetary accounting.

    Thanks for the strategies presented. One thing I also believe is credit cards presenting a 0 apr often bait consumers in zero interest rate, instant acceptance and easy internet balance transfers, but beware of the top factor that will void the 0 easy neighborhood annual percentage rate as well as throw you out into the very poor house quick.

    Thanks for your beneficial post. Over time, I have come to be able to understand that the actual symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by the particular build up connected fluid relating to the lining on the lung and the chest muscles cavity. The sickness may start in the chest place and multiply to other body parts. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include losing weight, severe breathing in trouble, fever, difficulty taking in food, and bloating of the neck and face areas. It needs to be noted that some people existing with the disease usually do not experience any serious signs at all.

    Thanks for the tips on credit repair on this amazing site. Some tips i would tell people would be to give up the mentality they will buy today and fork out later. As being a society we all tend to try this for many factors. This includes family vacations, furniture, as well as items we’d like. However, you should separate your current wants from the needs. As long as you’re working to fix your credit score you have to make some sacrifices. For example you are able to shop online to economize or you can look at second hand suppliers instead of highly-priced department stores with regard to clothing.

    Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Quite a few people have not had a possibility to attend a traditional college or university nonetheless seek the elevated earning possibilities and career advancement that a Bachelor’s Degree offers. Still people might have a college degree in one discipline but would like to pursue a thing they already have an interest in.

    I have observed that in digital camera models, specialized devices help to concentrate automatically. These sensors with some cameras change in contrast, while others work with a beam associated with infra-red (IR) light, especially in low light. Higher standards cameras sometimes use a combination of both techniques and might have Face Priority AF where the digicam can ‘See’ some sort of face and concentrate only on that. Many thanks for sharing your opinions on this weblog.

    Thanks for your article. Another factor is that to be a photographer includes not only trouble in taking award-winning photographs but in addition hardships in getting the best photographic camera suited to your needs and most especially problems in maintaining the quality of your camera. It is very true and noticeable for those photography addicts that are in to capturing a nature’s exciting scenes – the mountains, the particular forests, the actual wild or seas. Going to these daring places absolutely requires a digital camera that can meet the wild’s unpleasant conditions.

A significant quantity of households own several autos these days, in particular those with mature teenage youngsters still living at home, as well as the savings for policies can soon mount up. So it will pay to look for a bargain.

    In this grand design of things you’ll get an A with regard to hard work. Exactly where you actually lost me personally was in all the specifics. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And it could not be much more true in this article. Having said that, let me reveal to you just what did work. The authoring is actually really powerful which is most likely the reason why I am making the effort to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, although I can certainly see the jumps in logic you come up with, I am not confident of exactly how you seem to connect the points which inturn produce your final result. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your issue but hope in the foreseeable future you connect the dots much better.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this specific concern and it really does give me a lot of fodder for thought. However, because of everything that I have seen, I only trust when other feedback pile on that people today continue to be on point and not embark on a soap box involving some other news du jour. Anyway, thank you for this outstanding point and though I do not go along with this in totality, I respect the point of view.

    Thanks for revealing your ideas with this blog. Also, a fantasy regarding the finance institutions intentions when talking about property foreclosures is that the traditional bank will not have my installments. There is a specific amount of time that this bank will require payments occasionally. If you are also deep inside the hole, they may commonly require that you pay that payment 100 . However, that doesn’t mean that they will have any sort of repayments at all. If you and the standard bank can be capable to work anything out, the particular foreclosure course of action may stop. However, if you ever continue to miss out on payments beneath new system, the foreclosure process can just pick up exactly where it left off.
