Since the creation of money there has been times of recession, how to deal with these recessions has mired controversy throughout the ages. With the onset of the Great Recession and while much of the world is still recovering this question has once again come to the forefront. Europe lead by Germany has adopted a policy of austerity which leads me to the debate topic. Austerity is superior to stimulus as a governments economic policy in times of recession. I will argue the negation of the topic.
First round: definitions and acceptance only, no arguments in first round please.
Second round: opening statements all arguments must be presented in first round
Third round: rebuttals to clash against opponent
Forth round: closing statements summation of debate and any last words
For my definitions I will define the following words
Austerity: Economic conditions created by government measures to reduce a budget deficit, especially by reducing public expenditure.
Stimulus: A plan to boost the economy and achieve positive effects like increased job creation, jumpstart frozen credit markets, restore consumer spending etc. through the use of fiscal policy like government spending and tax measures.
Superior: Leading to best economic benefits for the people of the nation.
Recession: A period of temporary economic decline during which trade and industrial activity are reduced, generally identified by a fall in GDP in two successive quarters.
I look forward to the debate.

What's funny is that samet's argument sounded more intelligent than a defense of austerity would.
