Government Purchases

The money that a government spends procuring goods or services from the private sector. Examples include a local government hiring a company to repair a road or the national government buying artillery for the military. In Keynesian economics, government purchases are important for stimulating demand in times of economic downturn. That is, when no one will buy goods or services, Keynesian economics states that the government ought to do so in order to keep commerce going.
