You are mixing two different types of demand.
There is the demand for our daily bread so to say as with the food, shelter and clothing required to survive day to day.
People will always buy these things and given the extra money, may buy them in a higher quality or after a shorter wear out time, but they will continue to buy them.
What stimulates the economy is making something available that is so necessary that it forces people to find a way to buy it, but is not something being currently purchased. The PC is the best example because nobody had one and suddenly everybody had to have one.
After the initial flood of sales, the continuing sales are baked in already and now the computer is more of a commodity like Grated Parmesan Cheese. I doubt that there a majority of homes in the USA that don't have both of these in-house and ready for use right now.
How does a country grow jobs absent the societal "killer app" new product? A good first step is to stop actively blocking the efforts of job creators.
After that, paying people to invest by cutting the depreciation schedules is a good move. If that doesn't work, matching dollar grants on a percent of investment in real assets.
When a particular response to a particular policy causes a deficit inducing response from the private sector, change that policy. If companies are being encouraged to leave our country, why not reverse the policy that is providing the encouragement and replace it with a policy that encourages companies to move here? This is not rocket science.
All that is needed is to abandon the get-evenism approach to punitive tax policies and punitive regulation and logically address what is happening in the real world.
What's being tried right now is not working, has not worked and will not work to grow the economy. They are holding tight to the policy, though, so presumably, whatever it is that they are trying to achieve is being achieved.
