ABSTRACT
The article discusses the size and composition of fiscal stimulus packages. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) reports that the total amount of stimulus in the Group of 20 (G-20) amounts to nearly 692 billion dollars for 2009, which falls short to the needs to tackle the economic crisis. It states that several fiscal stimulus packages are intended to stimulate private investment, such as subsidies and corporate tax breaks.
