Fiscal policy

The policy of a government in controlling its own expenditures and taxation, which together make up the budget.

Note: A function of fiscal policy, along with monetary policy, is to regulate the level of economic activity, the price level, and the balance of payments. Fiscal policy also determines the distribution of resources between the public sector and the private sector and influences the distribution of wealth.
