You haven't said why yet.
Sure it's wasteful. If you're giving me the option to instead buy one four dollar wrench and use the rest of the money in other ways...medicare, military salaries, infrastructure, sure, those are all better things to do than overpay for a wrench.
But if my choice is spend the money on a wrench or don't spend it at all, I'm spending it right now because it's better for the economy.
