You will get your infrastructure built, but at the cost of throwing the economy into a deeper recession than before.
I find it funny that you call the early days of the Great Depression, and the late 1980's days of Stagflation "growing economies". By that standard, we were in a "growing economy" last year, before austerity drug us down.
More important than infrastructure, we would have JOBS, pulling us out of our current economic situation. Jobs will turn us around, nothing else.
