fiscal stimulus

When a government either increases its spending or cuts taxes in an effort to boost economic growth. Often, fiscal stimulus (especially the spending part) is meant to be short-term in nature but with benefits that supposedly last for decades. For example, building a bridge today creates jobs immediately for workers, while creating a more efficient river crossing would help the transport of goods for decades to come.
