fiscal policy fiscal policies
Strongly Associated with:   monetary policy
Some economists favor using fiscal policy to try to grow or slow down the economy. For example, when unemployment is high and inflation is low, some believe that increasing government spending/borrowing will add to aggregate demand and increase economic growth. Others favor cutting taxes or using monetary policy in a manner that encourages increased private spending on the theory that decentralized markets will better allocate available resources than the government.
