Expert's answer
Answer on Question#37454 - Economics - Macroeconomics
This isn’t a “spending” expansionary budget, it’s a contractionary one.
Basic macro analysis. First derivative of demand side identity:
ΔY = ΔC + ΔI + ΔG + ΔNX
Since ΔG (the budget deficit) is negative, the impact on ΔY is also negative. This isn’t a “spending” expansionary budget, it’s a contractionary one. Moreso since the main cuts appear to be on public investment which has a higher multiplier. Note: what they spend on is actually not relevant from this point of view. Only the changes matter.
