Each project is financed by government borrowing at an interest rate of 5%. The benefits of the first project are $40,000 per year for the first five years, $60,000 per year for the next two years, and $80,000 per year for the last three years. The benefits of the second project are $70,000 per year for the first four years, $50,000 in the fifth year, $40,00 in the sixth year, and $30,000 per year for the last four year. Evaluate whether the spending on each of these projects adds to the burden of government debt over the next ten years.
