  • 1. FISCAL POLICY AND MONETARY POLICY GROUP #6 CABANSAG, JIA DYCAICO, STEPH MEDINA, MAXINE TRINIDAD, DIOR
  • 2. FISCAL POLICY
    • Fiscal Policy - i s the use of government expenditure and revenue collection to influence the economy.
    • Two main ingredients of Fiscal Policy:
    • Government Expenditure
    • Taxation
  • 3. FISCAL POLICY
    • Stances of Fiscal Policy
    • A neutral stance or fiscal policy implies a balanced economy. this results in a large tax revenue. Government spending is fully funded by tax revenue and overall the budget outcome has a neutral effect on the level of economic activity.
  • 4. FISCAL POLICY
    • Stances of Fiscal Policy
    • An expansionary stance of fiscal policy involves government spending exceeding tax revenue.
    • A contractionary fiscal policy occurs when government spending is lower than tax revenue.
  • 5. FISCAL POLICY
    • Methods of funding:
    • Taxation
    • Seignioriage, the benefit of printing money.
    • Borrowing money from the population or abroad.
    • Consumption of fiscal reserves.
    • Sale of fixed assets (e.g., land).
  • 6. FISCAL POLICY
    • Economic effects of fiscal policy:
    • Governments use fiscal policy to influence the level of aggregate demand in the economy, in an effort to achieve economic objectives of price stability, full employment, and economic growth. Governments can use a budget surplus to do two things: to slow the pace of strong economic growth, and to stabilize prices when inflation is too high. Keynesian theory posits that removing spending from the economy will reduce levels of aggregate demand and contract the economy, thus stabilizing prices.
  • 7. FISCAL POLICY
    • Examples of Fiscal Policy:
    • Budget Deficit
    • Budget Surplus
    • Balanced Budget
  • 8. MONETARY POLICY
    • Monetary policy is the process by which the monetary authority of a country controls the supply of money, often targeting a rate of interest. Monetary policy is usually used to attain a set of objectives oriented towards the growth and stability of the economy. These goals usually include stable prices and low unemployment.
  • 9. MONETARY POLICY
    • Types of Monetary Policy:
    • In practice, all types of monetary policy involve modifying the amount of base currency (M0) in circulation. This process of changing the liquidity of base currency through the open sales and purchases of (government-issued) debt and credit instruments is called open market operations.
    • Constant market transactions by the monetary authority modify the supply of currency and this impacts other market variables such as short term interest rates and the exchange rate.
  • 10. MONETARY POLICY
    • Monetary Policy: Target Market Variable: Long Term Objective:
    • Inflation Targeting Interest rate on overnight debt A given rate of change in the CPI
    • Price Level Targeting Interest rate on overnight debt A specific CPI number
    • Monetary Aggregates The growth in money supply A given rate of change in the CPI
    • Fixed Exchange Rate The spot price of the currency The spot price of the currency
    • Gold Standard The spot price of gold Low inflation as measured by the gold price
    • Mixed Policy Usually interest rates Usually unemployment + CPI change
  • 11. MONETARY POLICY
    • Monetary Policy Tools:
    • Monetary Base - Monetary policy can be implemented by changing the size of the monetary base. This directly changes the total amount of money circulating in the economy.
    • Reserve Requirements - The monetary authority exerts regulatory control over banks. Monetary policy can be implemented by changing the proportion of total assets that banks must hold in reserve with the central bank.
    • Discount window lending - The monetary authority exerts regulatory control over banks. Monetary policy can be implemented by changing the proportion of total assets that banks must hold in reserve with the central bank.
    • Interest Rates - The contraction of the monetary supply can be achieved indirectly by increasing the nominal interest rates. Monetary authorities in different nations have differing levels of control of economy-wide interest rates.
    • Currency Board - A currency board is a monetary arrangement that pegs the monetary base of one country to another, the anchor nation. As such, it essentially operates as a hard fixed exchange rate, whereby local currency in circulation is backed by foreign currency from the anchor nation at a fixed rate.
