We show a positive relation between government debt and corporate cash holdings for a large sample of 13,045 firms across 26 countries between 1992-2019. Our finding is robust to several sensitivity tests, including alternate definitions of government debt and corporate cash holdings, and potential endogeneity concerns. The effect of government debt on corporate cash holdings is stronger for firms with low net working capital, and in bank dependent countries. Government debt exerts a weaker influence on cash holdings in countries with stronger institutional setting and greater market openness. Taken together, our results suggest that government debt crowds out private spending motivating firms to accumulate more cash.
