4) Ricardo noted (as every bondholder knows) the equivalence of the value of a given debt and the capitalized value of the interest on it (22). But he recognized that the debt policy might extend beyond the consumer's lifetime so that the discounting of the future taxes would be incomplete. He then argued, however, that concern for the welfare of one's heirs could be sufficient to prevent any undesired shift of consumption possibilities between generations. 5) Equation of the values of two things does not mean that lower future taxes (even to perpetuity) are equivalent to an asset paying that amount.

Whatever is the fitting contribution from property to the general expenses of the state, in the same and in no greater proportion should it contribute towards either the interest or the repayment of the national debt». Mill goes on to argue that, in general, it is desirable to maintain a surplus (sinking fund) to repay the debt. But not in all cases: «The advantage of paying off the national debt of Great Britain, for instance, is that it would enable us to get rid of the worse half of our taxation.

The system of public loans, in such circumstance, may be pronounced the very worst which, in the present state of civilization, is still included in the catalogue of financial expedients» (29). As before, Mill qualified this view and indeed introduced the germs of the idea of an optimum or maximum feasible debt: «First, when what is borrowed is foreign capital, the overflowings of the general accumulation of the world; or, secondly, when it is capital which either would not have been saved at all unless this mode of investment had been open to it, or, after being saved, would have been wasted in unproductive enterprises, or sent to seek employment in foreign countries.
