Fiscal policy

Decisions by the President and Congress, usually relating to 

Taxation

 and government spending, with the goals of 

Full

 employment, price stability, and 

Economic

 growth. By changing 

Tax

 laws, the government can effectively modify the amount of 

Disposable income

 available to 

ITS

 taxpayers. For example, if taxes were to increase, consumers would have less 

Disposable income

 and in turn would have less 

Money

 to spend on goods and services. This difference in 

Disposable income

 would go to the government instead of going to 

Consumer

, who would pass the 

Money

 onto companies. Or, the government could choose to increase government spending by directly purchasing goods and services from private companies. This would increase the flow of 

Money

 through the 

Economy

 and would eventually increase the 

Disposable income

 available to consumers. Unfortunately, this process takes time, as the 

Money

 needs to wind 

ITS

 way through the economy, creating a significant lag between the implementation of 

Fiscal

 policy and 

ITS

 effect on the economy.
