Abstract: 
We analyze the effectiveness of an increase in government consumption for stimulating growth for diverse levels of public debt in the European Union. We conclude, that growth rate can be stimulated in the short run by an increase in government consumption but only at low levels of public debt. Moreover, we find that an increase in intermediate consumption is more effective than an increase in compensation of public employees in stimulating output growth.
