Deficit spending has both its supporters and detractors. Supporters argue that such spending stimulates the economy in a typical Keynesian way. Detractors assert that economic growth is hampered by persistent government deficits largely because of a crowding out effect. The current paper utilizes a Feder Growth Model approach to analyze the impact of deficit spending on economic growth.
