Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually the quoted figures are for 2012 only.

Anything prior to 2009 it is very hard to get accurate statistics on.  Detailed budget reports only date from that year on, and it's still rather vague. The reflationary spending has primarily been directed to infrastructure and attempts to stimulate domestic demand.
