We agree that there is a difference between keeping programs going for ever and having a program with finite amounts so that projects can be done in a reasonable time. If we insist on getting them done too quickly in order to meet the March 31 deadline, labour costs will clearly be higher, because we will have to pay for overtime and salaries could double. The price of some materials could go way up in that period too.
