I added the stub category for this article thinking it needs extensive work. I suggest that we set up this article similar to that seen in the article monetary policy. I hope to add my own touch when i get some spare time. Dupz 15:42, 29 September 2005 (UTC) gay

Fiscal surplus[edit]

I've added a paragraph on fiscal surpluses . . . not everyone runs a deficit! DOR (HK) (talk) 03:24, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

New deal[edit]

The statement the New Deal reasoned deficit spending is inaccurate. The New Deal in fact saw tepid deficit spending, and contained many balanced budgets. Thoughts? I'll change eventually. 69.94.192.147 (talk) 14:02, 7 February 2009 (UTC).

I think the fiscal policy is how the goverment uses taxes and/or goverment expenditures to change the level of output, employment, or prices.
FDR used an emergency deficit for the New Deal, the Federal budget was balanced until WWII. The emergency budget was paid off at the end of the war. 92.7.20.203 (talk) 09:46, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

Dr. Faia's comment on this article[edit]

Dr. Faia has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:


The article lacks mention to the recent debate on the optimal date exiting from expansionary fiscal policies and the consequences of consolidaiton policies. Following the 2007 crisis large expansionary fiscal packages had been put in place. The question aroused on the optimal timing for policies to return to normal.

Angeloni, I. , Faia, E. and M. Lo Duca (Exit Strategies. With I. Angeloni and R. Winkler, European Economic Review, 70, 2014, pp. 231–257.) show empirically and theoretically that the optimal time to exit (an expansionary fiscal policy) has to balance the benefits of demand expansions with the medium run costs of risk-taking (in expensionary environments with low interest rates banks leverage excessively and become more fragile).


We hope Wikipedians on this talk page can take advantage of these comments and improve the quality of the article accordingly.
