Yes, and the incentive is self perpetuating. People want to make money, they make money by running a successful business, if you encourage spending (by giving people more money), business does well, if business does well more jobs will be created, when more jobs are created, more people make money, when more people make money more money will be spent and invested, when more money is invested, banks do better.
