Stimulus Without Debt

Author

Listed:
  • Laurence Seidman

Abstract

The persistent argument against Keynesian stimulus is that it will require government borrowing and therefore raise debt levels. But the stimulus should also increase incomes, easing any debt burden. The author argues there is another strategy to create stimulus but with no additional debt. He analyzes a wide range of monetary alternatives as well.
