Please note that the title of the article is related to every individual, school, company, government, etc. One of the most rudimentary activities and also one of the most unshunnable things done by an economic player is: spending. Due to the existence of money in the world economy, spending is imperative for many reasons, one of them is for survival.
Let us ascertain how expenditures affect the globe to an unimaginable extent. Here, economic spending means profitable spending. In other words, spending on productive stuff/commodities/services to a palatable level makes a spending an economic spending. But how on earth does such type of spending aid the global economy? That is a big question. One of the crucial drivers of the global economy is money. When it is used by economic players such as individuals, schools, governments, etc in a productive way, there would be no or minimal less scope for bad debts emerging from debts. Indeed, in order to grow, credit is also awfully needed but when such credit is unproductively used, returns from such spending would be less or sometimes no returns which would affect the pay off of debts’ situations. When debts are not paid, banks and other lenders suffer certainly which is not a good thing macroeconomic perspective for unpredictable time duration. When this happens at a large scale, that means lent money does not arrive into banks & lenders’ hands, thus, this would be termed as unproductive or uneconomic spending as per me which affects the world economy ultimately as such acts create deficiencies in savings and investments primarily. And thus, some measures like hike in interest rates to cut lending, bailouts to debts and deficits stricken banks, governments, firms, etc become inevitable.
Economic spending would also mean necessary savings which are great for the global economy. To make this point clearer, I have an effective example for you. When a wage-earner spends money economically, there is a probability that he/she would be left with some money after making all the basic spending. This economic spending gives room for savings in the society, technically, which is vital for many monetary reasons.
Another insistence, Mr. Z is a wage earner, earning $100 a month. Let us further assume that basic costs required are $80 a month, i.e., the spending on imperative goods and services are at $80. Just in case the person decides to buy a vehicle of $30 for traveling to his workplace which is just a 5 minute journey by walk. If he buys it, the spending is called as unproductive or uneconomic as the person gets back to his/her home and does nothing productive in terms of money. If he buys the vehicle in order to save time by using it to get back to his/her home sooner after work, to make money by doing economic or commercial business, then, that is called economic or profitable spending which aids the global economy strictly speaking.
The bottom line is economic spending is a massive pro to the global economy and in a bid to judge whether a spending is economic or uneconomic, why the money was spent would be the most important query/segment for concluding. And never forget that one of the reasons why Lehman Brothers collapsed was owing to reckless spending it made.
