The "soft budget constraint syndrome" is usually associated with the paternalistic role of the state towards economic organizations and private firms, non-profit institutions and households.
The soft budget constraint syndrome is the manifestation of the paternalistic role of the modern state.
The softening of the budget constraint is an inducement to such incompatibility: the softer the budget constraint and the larger the sphere of the economy where the syndrome prevails, the more incompatibility appears.

This is true for Ted, whose indifference curve is tangent to the constraint at pt T. This is not true for Bill, whose indifference curve intersects the constraint at pt B (at the kink point).

 Finance & Development, June 1999 - Lessons of the Russian Crisis for Transition Economies
The soft budget constraint was normally the result of a state budget process far removed from considerations of efficiency or profit.
Second, because soft budget constraints are incompatible with an equitable and efficient tax system, the enterprise's tax obligation would be determined in practice not by tax law but by the terms of a contract negotiated between the enterprise and the state authorities.
The first was to demonstrate that it had the political will to tighten the budget by reforming its relationship with large enterprises, such as those in the oil and gas sectors, through the imposition of hard budget constraints.

The increase in the price of pizza shifts the budget constraint to BC2, and the consumer moves to point C where the new budget constraint is tangent to a lower indifference curve.
The consumer's budget constraint shifts from BC1 to BC2 and her optimal choice changes from point A (c1 cheese, w1 wine) to point B (c2 cheese, w2 wine).
To decompose this change into income and substitution effects, we draw in budget constraint BC3, which is parallel to BC2 but tangent to the consumer's initial indifference curve at point C. The movement from point A to C represents the substitution effect.

 Soft Budget Constraint and Stock Price Information
The budget implemented at an interim date is always superior to the one efficient ex ante, since, at the interim stage, regulators do not internalize the disincentive effect of their intervention on firms effort.
Budget constraints are more or less soft according to the information available to regulators.
It is shown that stock-price information may increase the softness of the budget constraint, decrease firms incentives to exert effort and may reduce social welfare.

A budget constraint is a measure of the resources the consumer has available to them: the income they have available to them and what it will buy in terms of the prices of the goods the consumer wants to buy.
In terms of the modeling of consumer behavior, we develop a theory of consumer preferences (how utility is determined) then we combine it with a representation of the budget constraint and we use these to examine how a consumer will choose the amounts of various goods to purchase.
So the slope of the budget line is given by the ratio of the price of the good on the horizontal axis to the price of the good on the vertical axis.

It is one symptom of a federal agency increasingly constrained by a budget that has failed to keep up with costs.
Even as concerns grow, the agency has budgeted only $1.6 million for such safety studies of medications already on the market; and that sum is scheduled to drop to $900,000 in the coming year.

 SSRN-A Political Economy Theory of the Soft Budget Constraint by James Robinson, Ragnar Torvik   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-11)
In this paper we argue that the prevalence of soft budget constraints can be best explained by the political desirability of softness.
We show that because of the dynamic commitment problem inherent in the soft budget constraint, politicians can in essence commit to make transfers to entrepreneurs which otherwise they would not be able to do.
Though the soft budget constraint may induce economic inefficiency, it may be politically rational because it influences the outcomes of elections.

 Definition of Budget Constraint
A budget constraint is an accounting identity that describes the consumption options available to an agent with a limited income (or wealth) to allocate among various goods.
It is important to understand that the budget constraint is an accounting identity, not a behavioral relationship.
An agent may well determine his behavior by considering his budget constraint, but his budget constraint is a given element of the problem he faces.

So one's goal of maximizing utility is subject to the constraint imposed by one's budget.
To add this constraint to our model, we need to rewrite it in a form that can be plotted in (F, C) space.
We will use the completed model to analyse how consumer's choose to maximize the satisfaction they receive from the consumption of a bundle of goods, subject to the constraint imposed on their choice by their income and the prices of the goods they buy.

The notion that projects can have expected returns, variances and covariances of return does appeal to me. However, when you apply MPT to a portfolio of securities, you mostly assume a budget constraint to indicate what transactions are allowed.
They love to calculate all of the various metrics pertaining to their project such as the percentages of deliverables completed, tasks currently on schedule, tasks that should have started, of variance from budget, etc. These are all good to know.
The problem is that they spend so much time summarizing and restating data in their spreadsheets, they never talk to the team members about how the project is going and what problems they are having.

 National Insolvency: A Test of the US Intertemporal Budget Constraint
If a nation fails to satisfy its intertemporal budget constraint (IBC) then, like a government or a household, either it will become insolvent or it can consume more of its income.
The main purpose of this paper is to establish necessary and sufficient conditions for a nation to satisfy its IBC, and to use these to carry out a test of whether the United States is violating its IBC.
After suitable modifications the techniques used in the literature in testing the government IBC can be used; for example, the balance of payments replaces the government budget constraint.
