Question for Economists

Reblogged from Modern Money:

To all economists in the Australian media that follow the Neoclassical/New Keynesian/New Monetary Consensus paradigm I have a question. My question is do you disagree with this:

There are only three ways to put the private sector in surplus

Run a government deficit & a current account surplus
Run a government deficit > current account deficit
Run a government surplus < current account surplus

Yes or No will do but feel free to expand!
