If savings do not increase, government spending pushes up interest rates and ‘crowds out’ private investment. Furthermore, conservatives often see the economy through the eyes of the financial community. 11 In making this argument, conservatives ignore the differences between the perspectives of the financial community and ‘real’ investors, the firms that actually build factories. Financial markets tend to be myopic, focusing on the short run; real investors look at the long run. Financial markets’ anxiety 42 Three Perspectives on Policy is increased by rising deficits; real investors are equally or more worried about a decaying infrastructure or a weak economy.

15 Most of these theories again assume the economy is at full employment—in which case it’s obvious that looser monetary policy cannot lead to more output. They ignore price and wage rigidities and the distributive effects of price changes. Yet, from other perspectives, it is precisely because of these rigidities that the economy is often not at full employment. 43 Macroeconomics When conservatives are not arguing that monetary policy is ineffective, they contend that it’s counterproductive because the government always gets the timing wrong, as discussed above.

As we discussed earlier, it’s important to differentiate the effects of inflation from its causes in assessing the effects on the poor. Inflation can be the result of an adjustment to a crisis, and not the cause of the crisis. When inflation is due to outside shocks, such as the oil price rise in the 1970s or the currency shocks of the 1990s, typical measures of fighting inflation (tightening macroeconomic policy) can lead to bankruptcies and higher unemployment. As we’ll discuss in the next section, the cost of fighting inflation can outweigh the costs of inflation, especially for the poor, who suffer the most from unemployment.
