Fiscal policy [...]

Fiscal policy is the use of government revenue collection (mainly taxes) and expenditure (spending) to influence the economy.

Fiscal policy can be distinguished from monetary policy, in that fiscal policy deals with taxation and government spending and is often administered by an executive under laws of a legislature, whereas monetary policy deals with the money supply, lending rates and interest rates and is often administered by a central bank.
