The worrying problem of global debt (Column: Active Voice)
Any undergraduate student of economics would vouch for the fact that an economy in a recession requires a fiscal stimulus package (or more government spending and lower taxes). Such a stimulus can only be managed if the economy constrains its fiscal spending in times of growth. Restraint on spending in good times would allow the creation of a buffer for a strong fiscal policy response in the event of a downturn. This Keynesian prescription of counter-cyclical fiscal policy is expected to stabilise output of an economy over business cycle dynamics.
