Thank you very much for that clarification. I couldn't help but address this issue, even if it strays a bit from our main topic.
The debate within the committee on the subject at hand is this one. When the government spends a dollar in subsidies of any kind in support of business, is it for election purposes and to help its friends, or is it for the purpose of growth and support for economic development?
Mr. Hayes, you said there could be a financial accounting analysis, but the advantage of government support is that you can also juggle parallel gains, like public good, that can't always be accounted for.
My question is for the representative of the Office of the Auditor General and the Parliamentary Budget Officer. To your knowledge, is it possible to have a tool that measures the impact of every dollar spent in support of a business? What is the economic impact in terms of financial impact?
