Puerto Rico’s Budget Deficit: an Independent Assessment

Recently there has been a public debate regarding the amount of Puerto Rico’s fiscal deficit for Fiscal Year 2012. Before moving on to provide our analysis of the Commonwealth’s deficit, we believe it is appropriate to differentiate among and between three different definitions of the term “deficit”, which, unfortunately, oftentimes are erroneously used interchangeably in the public debate. In order to clarify our analysis we pause briefly to explain each one of these definitions:

Budget Deficit – Is defined as the excess of spending over income for a government, a corporation, or an individual during a particular period of time. For purposes of this calculation the recurrence or non-recurrence of income and spending is not material. Similarly, the timing of the cash receipts or disbursements associated with a particular income or expense stream is irrelevant for purposes of this calculation. The important thing is to correctly and timely recognize income and expenses during the appropriate fiscal year.

Fiscal Situation Update: Fiscal Year 2008 Review

I. A preliminary look at the fiscal 2007-08 balance

About a month ago the Puerto Rico Treasury Department released the preliminary revenue figures for fiscal year 2008. General fund net revenues totaled $8.252 billion, which is $610 million, or 6.88 per cent, less than the $8.862 billion collected during the previous fiscal year.

If we compare the actual revenues received with the originally budgeted amount, we find that general fund net revenues fell $825 million, or 9.09 per cent, short of the initially expected amount of $9.077 billion. This original revenue estimate, however, was revised in March 2008. At that time, the Treasury announced it expected net general fund revenues to come in at the level of $8.671 billion. Still, actual receipts were $419 million, or 4.83 per cent, below the revised forecast and even the adjusted projections were missed.
