The answer should be easy. Follow the Keynesian prescription when there is an output gap especially. But the reality is never so simple. The tighter budgets in some Europe is a reaction to the sovereign debt problems in the EU. The basis for the tighter budgets is that capital will re-locate of dangerous sovereigns driving up rates of interest which will reduce investments. Clearly, at the extreme this will be true, but this seems nearly the same as the tightening proposed during the Great Depression. It could have unintended results. I would claim that the market searches for counter-cyclical spending throughout a recession That is helpful because there is less private investment.
The market does not like structural deficits which have been building across Europe and Japan. Some have argued that the main element is to cut spending without increasing taxes. Goldman Sachs economists have found that a 1% slice in spending will result in a .6% increase in growth Raising fees to GDP by 1% will cut growth by .9%. The multiplier results aren’t what’s normally expected. Paul Krugman, on the other hand, argues that any cut in stimulus would be “utter folly”.
