Abstract: The Zimbabwe economy is one of the most economies that has experienced a relatively high budget deficit for a prolonged period which has been assumed to cause slow economic growth. This research project examines the effects of budget deficit in the development of the Zimbabwean economy and analyses the correlation between budget deficit and other macro-economic indicators using the ordinary least squares (OLS) estimation over the period of 2000 to 2016. The study used secondary data obtained from ZIMTATS, RBZ and World Bank, the data was analyzed using the State program. The research results showed that there is a negative relationship between budget deficit and economic growth in Zimbabwe which means that budget deficit hinders economic performance.
