These simplifications often lead to overexpectations for the effects concerned. The possibility of those counterarguments and effects cannot be eliminated completely, but simulating the marginal effects of a 1 billion euro change renders these limitations as less severe: potential shortages on the supply side that lead to, for example, increasing prices are unlikely for such a small change in demand. Moreover, at least during times of economic crisis or slow growth, the supply of goods and labour is more elastic than usual.
