Hi Sheina while saving and investing has some value to the economy. Under Keynes view, consumption (spending your money) is the fastest way to stimulate the economy.

Keynes would want people working as long as they can and spending lots of money throughout their life.

The frugal nature of FIRE by definition means we reduce our personal consumption. That is the part Keynes would not be a fan of.
