Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Depending on the circumstances you might get more consumption and then more production, if that society produces anything needed by most people. If you have, broadly, 20% unemployment it will be a long time before you get wage push inflation and that is the mechanism that giving money to other than the rich works. Give it to the rich and they just get richer. They may buy up more assets, but they won't consume much more of anything the average person consumes.
