Question and answer
How does the federal government implement its fiscal policies? Given economic conditions today, do you suggest expansionary fiscal policy or contractionary fiscal policy? How would your suggestions
affect production and employment? Why?
The federal government implements fiscal policy utilizing its many legislative venues, each State has its own legislators that set fiscal policy for each of their own States, [ the Federal government has the senate and house to set its fiscal policies with the President approving laws passed by the combined Senate and House of Representatives. The government has implements its fiscal policies
via automatic controls and legislative changes. Automatic controls are ones that do not have to be voted on. These policies, such as; unemployment insurance and progressive taxes are already in place and have the most affect on the short-run changes in economic business cycles by dampening the rising or decreasing of income and spending. Whereas the legislative policy changes involving taxes or spending take time to write, be voted on and then implemented. The problem with these policies is the possible over-correction for a temporary fluctuation in the market. For today’s market, I would have chosen an expansionary policy that was cognizant of the potential recovery and reduced the targeted levels. Taking into consideration how the automatic controls operate to keep the peaks and valleys down to small hill and dales. Increases in the government spending coupled with tax cuts will result in an increase in overall incomes as more jobs become available. These increases will increase production and employment to meet the aggregate demand. In the business cycle, this will result in an increase in consumer spending which will result in an increase in prices that will then start the cycle of restricting purchases due to the lower purchasing power of the consumer’s money. ]

Weegy: There are many men and women suffering with all types of Eating Disorders that do not appear in any specific weight range. Those with Anorexia can be slightly overweight... while those with Compulsive Eating can be slightly underweight. [ Variations for all who suffer can be anywhere from extremely underweight to extremely overweight to anywhere in between. The outward appearance of anyone with an Eating Disorder does NOT dictate the amount of physical danger they are in, nor does is determine the emotional conflict they feel inside. They need not display even close to all of the below symptoms to be in danger. ] (More)

Money acts as a unit of account, medium of exchange, or a store of value. Describe each of these different functions. o Provide an example of your use of money in each of these different functions.
Weegy: The unit of account refers to the fact that prices of different goods are expressed in a common monetary unit. For example, prices in the U.S. [ are expressed in dollars and an example of this function of money might be that the price of bath soap is $2.50 a bar and the price of shampoo is $6.50 a bottle. Without a common unit of account we would say that a bar of soap costs 3/4 a bottle of shampoo and a bottle of wine costs 2 ¼ bars of soap. The function of money as a medium of exchange solves all the difficulties of the barter system. The man with the cow who wants to purchase cloth need not seek a cloth seller who wants a cow. He can sell his cow in the market for money and then purchase cloth with the money obtained. For example, if an employer paid his/her workers with food for their services, then the employee would have to eat it then or it would spoil. So what if the employee wasn't hungry? So employers pay their employees with money cash, or checks and then that money can be stored in a bank, to be used later. The employee could go out and buy food when they were actually hungry. So even though people get paid at their jobs weekly or bi-weekly, they can still spend their money at different times. ] (More)

Weegy: I use my money as a unit of account by keeping a record of money that has been paid and money that has been received. I store my money in a very valuable place and I only exchange it when I want to invest, or consume. (More)
