Formatted abstract This thesis investigates the proposition that expansionary fiscal policy leads to a reduction in private sector expenditure.

The proposition states that a bond financed expansion in fiscal policy will displace private sector expenditure. This is seen as occurring through two particular channels. The first is through upward movements of nominal interest rates and the second relates to the generation of inflationary' pressures.

To investigate whether crowding out does occur, a series of dynamic multipliers are calculated. These multipliers depict the impact of government expenditure on national income and net government borrowing. The major conclusion arising from the empirical part of this thesis is that while evidence of partial crowding out exists, expansionary fiscal policy can be clearly shown to have an expansionary effect on national income over a three year period.
