Fiscal policy

Refers to government finance i.e. the borrowing, spending and taxation activities. If a government is concerned that it is borrowing excessively, it can raise taxes and/or cut spending (austerity measures). However, if it is concerned that there might be a recession, it can cut taxes, raise borrowing and/or spending (fiscal stimulus)
