Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So how many houses are built because of those reduced interest payments? How many kilometer of railway track laid? How many MW of power plants built? How many fibers of internet backbone laid down? How many ships launched?

Unless these reduced interest payments actually manifest in changed government outlays into (or revenues from) the domestic economy, they remain funny-money moving around within the consolidated government balance sheet.
