Added to Government Cost The materials account was in the past used to represent cost made for materials (consumption products) used by the population. If the material account is negative, it means that the compensation by the population to the cost of these consumption products was insufficient and government is adding more money to reduce the negative total of the materials account. The material account is not used any more and any contributions by the government are only used to recover past cost. When the material account is closed to zero, it will be removed.
