Fiscal and Monetary Policy
Chapter 14
Origins of Modern Fiscal
and Monetary Policy
• Fiscal Policy: Government policy
regarding taxing and spending
• Monetary Policy: The FED policy
aimed at regulating amount of
money in circulation and interest
• Before 1930, government rarely intervened in the
economy – good or bad times included
Classical Economics - Hayek
• Founded by Adam Smith – “laissez-faire”
• Focus on free market
• Recessions caused by outside influences – wars,
crop failures etc…
• Government should keep taxes low and spending
• Friedrich Von Hayek – Austrian School – No
government intervention in markets
Keynesian Economics
• Founded by British Economist John Maynard
Keynes – father of macroeconomics (1930s)
• Downward economic spiral
• Believed that fiscal policy (govt spending)
could stimulate overall demand during
recessions – cut taxes or boost government
spending (deficit spending)
• FDR used fiscal policy to end Depression

Chicago School - Friedman
• American economist Milton Friedman – Chicago
School of Economics
• Believed control of money supply = key to
stabilizing economy
• Use of monetary policy to expand and contract
the money supply
• Depression was caused by drop in money supply
• “Great contraction” – falling prices, rising
unemployment and declining incomes
• FED should have expanded the money supply
Monetarism – Chicago School
• Rapidly growing money supply = inflation
– Demand for goods rises
– Firms can’t keep up
– Prices rise
• Slowing growing money supply = deflation
– Spending and investment slow as prices drop and
inventories grow

helping the economy reach full employment,
stable prices and economic growth?
