The principle of functional finance is in sharp contrast with the traditional principle of ‘sound finance’, which requires that the budget always be balanced, either annually or over the course of the trade cycle.

(Kaldor 1954, p. 54) Keynes-inspired theories of growth, on the other hand, were not able to incorporate cyclical fluctuations with any degree of success.
