Fiscal Deficit and Private Sector Activities in Pakistan
AbstractThe macroeconomic effects of fiscal deficit have been examined in the light of three theories.viz: conventional crowding out, Keynesian crowding out and the monetary approach to the balance of payments. Using data for the period 1959.60 to 1986.87 this paper finds the absence of conventional ns well as Keynesian crowding out effects in Pakistan. Nevertheless, this paper finds that increase in fiscal deficit worsens current account balance. - a finding, in line with the monetary approach to the balance of payments. This paper also shows that increase in fiscal deficit reduces private savings, hence investment and growth in Pakistan.
