Fiscal policy poll

What are the times in history — whether in the U.S. or elsewhere — when a large-scale application of expansionary fiscal policy has been effective in raising a country out of a recession or depression?

I’ve already discussed World War II and the United States, so whether or not you agree with me there is no need to mention that episode again.  I’m not (yet) looking for a debate rather I am conducting an opinion poll.  Over the next few weeks or months I hope to investigate some of the cases you mention and see what is the verdict of history.
