In the former case world spending rises, and in the latter case world spending falls. The short-run effects of a balanced-budget rise in government spending are also reflected in the balance of payments.

Here we present a "Keynesian" two-country model in which prices are given while the levels of output and employment adjust in response to changes in aggregate demand. A similar framework could present a "classical" model in which the assumptions concerning the fixity of prices and the flexibility of output and employment are replaced by the assumption that prices are flexible while output is given at the full employment level.
