 crowding out   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
In economics, crowding out theoretically occurs when the government expands its borrowing more to finance increased expenditure or tax cuts in excess of revenue (i.e., is engaged in deficit spending) crowding out private sector investment by way of higher interest rates.
Since increased borrowing leads to higher interest rates by creating a greater demand for money and hence a higher "price" (ceteris paribus), the private sector, who is sensitive to interest rates will likely reduce investment due to a lower rate of return, this is the investment that is crowded out.
However, this crowding-out effect is moderated by the fact that government spending expands the market for private-sector products and thus stimulates – or "crowds in" – fixed investment (via the "accelerator effect").

However, the station agents won't get out of their booth and intercede in the event of a problem, so closed circuit TV and a better police presence in stations or just in the surorunding neighborhoods would solve the problem much better.

 SSRN-Motivation Crowding Theory: A Survey of Empirical Evidence by Bruno Frey, Reto Jegen
The motivation crowding effect suggests that an external intervention via monetary incentives or punishments may undermine (and under different indentifiable conditions strengthen) intrinsic motivation.
This survey shows that such scepticism is unwarranted and that there exists indeed compelling empirical evidence for the existence of crowding out and crowding in.
Crowding effects thus are an empirically relevant phenomenon, which can, in specific cases, even dominate the traditional relative price effect.

 Brad DeLong's Semi-Daily Journal: Crowding Out During the Industrial Revolution
Winslow, I think the most basic take-away lesson is that massive government borrowing -- whether for war or other purposes -- crowds out private borrowers trying to finance entrepeneurial ventures, and thus presumably slows the growth of the economy.
It seems to be assumed that it is "obvious" how crowding out works, but it is not really.

Now you may ask why people like George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan spend money out the wazoo, and so do I, but the reason is that strong defense is a prerequisite for sustained economic growth.

 The Crowding-out of Work Ethics
This paper analyses optimal contracts in a principal-agent model where the agent is intrinsically motivated at the outset and there is an endogenous relationship between the structure of incentive payments and intrinsic motivation (crowding effects).
The analysis shows that crowding effects have implications for the optimal contract and that under some conditions the principal can do better without implementing any economic incentives.
Furthermore, it is shown that when high-powered incentives diminish intrinsic motivation (crowding-out) the first-best solution in a principal-agent framework is unattainable.
