Many of the debates surrounding the United States federal budget center around competing macroeconomic schools of thought. In general, Democrats favor the principles of Keynesian economics to encourage economic growth via a mixed economy of both private and public enterprise, a welfare state, and strong regulatory oversight.

Therefore the difference between the national saving and the investment is equal to the net exports: − = Open economy with public deficit or surplus.

The government budget can be directly introduced into the model. We consider now an open economic model with public deficits or surpluses.
