For the last 25 years, the government has been incurring heavy budgetary deficits. Yet, data on recent Philippine experience reveal that no well-established guidelines on how to finance a budget deficit have been formulated. This paper investigates the means and measures to finance a deficit, considers a theory that chooses an optimal mix of policy instruments and studies the experience of less developed country like the Philippines as a case in point.
