• Unit 5: Fiscal Policy

    Governments use various policies and tools to steer the macroeconomy toward three main goals: full employment, price stability, and economic growth. In the remaining three units, we explore the conflicts and complexities of these policies and tools. First, let's study fiscal policy, which involves taxing and spending policies, including the fiscal legislation Congress enacts in the United States and similar legislative bodies promote in other countries.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 4 hours.
