The implementation of stimulus policies to minimize economic downturn and financial crisis of some countries in the world and Asia, including Vietnam, have ended with argumentative points of view from scholars and economic experts. So far, we have more time to further analyze the effect of “stimulus policies” - “economic stimulate policy package" in 2009.
