  1. Estimates

    In countries using the Westminster system the Estimates are a series of legislative proposals to parliament outlining how the government will spend its money. The Estimates are drawn up by bureaucrats in the treasury department in collaboration with representatives from the cabinet. They consist of detailed reports on how each department or ministry will spend its money. The estimates are normally introduced in the House of Commons just prior to the main budget, which gives them time to be analyzed by House committees. Unlike the budget the estimates contain no references to fiscal policy, long term goals, or where the money is coming from. After each section is reviewed by the relevant committee the entire Estimates are voted on as one bill. This "supply" vote is a matter of confidence. Unlike tax proposals in the budget, the Estimates are rarely controversial, with most issues being dealt with in committee. Most of the countries also mandate an update or series of updates to the Estimates to account for changes in the economy or in government policy. In Canada, for instance, this update must be passed in December each year.

Examples of estimates in a Sentence

  1. Baird Equity Research:

    We think Harley's decision to protect EU demand is wise for the long-term health of the market, but we expect the near-term impact to weigh on estimates and sentiment until a clearer path to mitigation is outlined.

  2. Finance Minister Ibrahim Alassaf:

    We were realistic in our estimates for next year's revenues in light of current and expected developments in the oil market. Maybe over the past years I agree we were conservative, but this year we were realistic.

  3. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer:

    Which isn't a lot. But this primary is just getting started.Both of these things can't be trueTrump's main pitch for reelection is the economy and, while it hasn't lived up to his 2016 campaign promises, he put forward an extremely rosy outlook in his annual budget proposal, released Monday.Just as an example, read from CNN's story about the predicted deficits in Trump's budget compared to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.Both of these things cannot be true:CBO says budget will grow -- The deficit -- the gap between how much the government spends versus how much it takes in -- surpassed $1 trillion for the calendar year in 2019, marking the first time since 2012.That number is only expected to widen even further over the coming decade, reaching a total of $1.7 trillion in 2030, according to the latest projections by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released in late January.White House says budget will shrink -- That's a sharp contrast to the White House's latest blueprint, which projects that the deficit will shrink to $261 billion by 2030. The President's budget assumes that the economy will grow at around 3% annually during that period of time helping to narrow the gap. Those estimates are significantly higher than what most economists anticipated along with the Federal Reserve.Bonus: Read CNN reporter Donna Borak's piece on the White House plan for more tax cuts despite the deficits.Impeachment falloutGiuliani has a channel to Barr -- Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Rudy Giuliani is giving information regarding his Ukraine conspiracy theories to Attorney General William Barr through some sort of special channel Barr has set up. This is not surprising since Trump clearly lumps his lawyer and the attorney general together. He asked Ukraine's President to be in touch with both of them. But a back channel to the DOJ? This is, um, not how things are supposed to work, writes Elie Honig.Trump weaponizes the presidency -- Read this from Stephen Collinson: (Trump) is completing his project of fashioning the office around his own personality. It's unrestrained, unaccountable, often profane, impervious to outside influence and factual constraints of normal governance. The President has established dominance over his party, his Cabinet and his own media complex. He loosened Congress's constraints by refusing to cooperate with the impeachment probe. The result is that there are very few political constraints on his behavior left.

  4. Richard Amurao:

    We don't really know if the $10-billion estimate is accurate but what we can tell you (about the $1 billion now sought) is based from estimates of the court cases and from what we already recovered.

  5. Morgan Stanley:

    We expect global growth to move below consensus estimates.
