In practice, however, it is very difficult to assess costs, because of the difficulties of predicting the consequences of selecting a hypothetical alternative. E.g if the government opts to spend 20 million of tax revenue on improving welfare facilities for blind people in cities, it is virtually impossible to calculate the value of the satisfaction which could have been derived by, instead using the money on building a new school or college.
