Fiscal Policy:

Fiscal Policy In simple words, fiscal policy is that part of government policy which is concerned with raising revenue through taxation, deciding on the level of public expenditure and public debt. The term ‘fiscal’ has been derived from the Greek word “Fisc”, meaning a basket to symbolize the public purse. Fisc, thus, refers to the Treasury. Fiscal policy, therefore, means a policy related to the treasury of the government.

Broader Concept:-:

Broader Concept:- Broadly speaking, ‘fiscal policy’ is a part of general economic policy of the government which is primarily concerned with the ‘ budget ’ receipts and expenditures of the government. In short , fiscal policy refers to the ‘ Budgetary Policy ’. Thus, the term fiscal policy embraces the tax and expenditure policies of the government. Fiscal policy operates through the control of government expenditures and tax receipts.


Definition :- According to ‘ Arthur Smithies , fiscal policy is “ a policy under which the government uses its expenditure and revenue programs to produce desired effects and to avoid undesirable effects on the national income, production and employment.” According to ‘ Paul Samuelson ’,” Fiscal Policy means public expenditure and tax policy.”

The Budget:-:

The Budget:- Fiscal policy operates through the budget. Infact, fiscal policy is also known as budgetary policy. The term ‘budget’ is derived from the French word ‘Bougette’ which means a leather bag or a wallet used to carry financial papers. Thus, the word ‘budget’ has come to mean papers containing financial matters. The budget simply means estimate of revenue and expenditure. Budget is the master financial plan of the government .
