Can the US spend its way to avert recession?

and really are they doing it because there is no alternative, or the risk of the alternative is too awful to bear?

The assumption is that the US is about to go into recession. This is not where the US is in the economic cycle right now - in fact quite the reverse. Therefore I do not understand this thread perhaps you could expand a little as to why you ask the question.

Yes, the same way a drunk keeps drinking to avoid a hangover.

My perception is that at some point soon the US is in danger of heading for a slump/slowdown/recession. That's because I'm focusing on the deficits and rising interest rates.

Thats a fact!
And interest rates can be adjusted.
But those those deficits - boy thats will sure prolong and deepen any recession (once it hits)

That's why I'm asking if the US can spend its way out. Deficits are a duality.
