An organization (such as a municipality) knows its operating expenses over the next T periods, denoted E1 , . . . , ET . (Normally these are positive; but we can have negative Et , which corresponds to income.) These expenses will be funded by a combination of investment income, from a mixture of bonds purchased at t = 0, and a cash account. The bonds generate investment income, denoted I1 , . . . , IT . The cash balance is denoted B0 , . . . , BT , where B0 ≥ 0 is the amount of the initial deposit into the cash account. We can have Bt < 0 for t = 1, . . . , T , which represents borrowing. After paying for the expenses using investment income and cash, in period t, we are left with Bt − Et + It in cash. If this amount is positive, it earns interest at the rate r+ > 0; if it is negative, we must pay interest at rate r− , where r− ≥ r+ . Thus the expenses, investment income, and cash balances are linked as follows: Bt+1 = (1 + r+ )(Bt − Et + It ) Bt − Et + It ≥ 0 (1 + r− )(Bt...
