More Spending Does Not Drive More Employment


It is almost universally asserted today that consumer spending drives employment.

This thesis gives support to the general Keynesian idea that government should “stimulate” the economy when it is suffering from a recession, whether it is through fiscal or monetary policy.

Glorious Spending
At the core, the idea is that if spending on goods and services goes up, then more people are needed in their production. And, as a consequence, more people are able to get jobs, earn a wage, and thus buy goods and services. In other words, it doesn’t matter if government wastefully increases spending ? even if it is borrowed money ? because the economic wheels start turning and as growth picks up we’ll be able to deal with debt, deficits, and so on.



There is no escaping the fact that production precedes consumption in a very real and fundamental sense: that entrepreneurs endeavor in production before they know that they will be able to sell the goods produced.

Spending is a possible outcome of entrepreneurial production, but not the other way around. The former does not employ people, but the latter does.
