This is for all those arm chair economists out there, cause I dont know. I have a feeling the public has been brainwashed into thinking deficit automatically means bad? Now I'll start off saying I know bugger all about economics, but during an economic crisis like this, isn't it better for the government to spend to boost the economy, rather than just try and keep a surplus? I mean, isn't a surplus for the raint days, and isn't it pouring outside? Getting into a deficit managed to get me into a house ok! And wouldn't tax cuts just result in the government therefor collecting less tax revenue?
