Question:

The Keynesian view suggests that the government can reduce aggregate demand by using:

A restrictive fiscal policy to shift the government budget toward a surplus (or smaller deficit).
Explaination

According to the Keynesians, policymakers can use the budget to diminish aggregate demand through restrictive fiscal policy. Reducing government expenditures and/or increasing tax rates should lead to a decline in the expected size of the budget deficit or an increase in the budget surplus.
