Is there an accurate first order calculation that can describe the impact of increasing/cutting government outlays on jobs? I've always used a very basic assumption (mostly for mathematical ease) to assess the impact at $100k of spending per job...as a result, my best estimate for assessing the impact of balancing the budget through spending cuts alone would cost our country ~15M jobs (assuming our deficit is $1.5T)...how accurate/inaccurate would you characterize this analysis?
