Net lending (+)/ borrowing (?) is calculated as revenue minus total expenditure. This is a core GFS balance that measures the extent to which general government is either putting financial resources at the disposal of other sectors in the economy and nonresidents (net lending), or utilizing the financial resources generated by other sectors and nonresidents (net borrowing). This balance may be viewed as an indicator of the financial impact of general government activity on the rest of the economy and nonresidents (GFSM 2001, paragraph 4.17). Note: Net lending (+)/borrowing (?) is also equal to net acquisition of financial assets minus net incurrence of liabilities.

Likewise, projections assume federal tax incentives, which were neutralizing the effects of Puerto Rico?s Act 154 on foreign companies, would not be available anymore, starting 2018, leading to additional revenue losses. In terms of policy assumptions, FEGP had a scenario without measures and an alternative scenario with various revenue and expenditure measure
