What role should government play in boosting the economy?
I believe the government should have some role to prevent drastic highs and lows in the economy. This is a balancing act between monetary and fiscal policies. When the Fed believes that inflation is a problem, it will use contractionary policy to decrease the money supply and raise interest rates. To counter a recession, it will use expansionary policy to increase the money supply and reduce interest rates. When the country is in a recession, the government could also increase spending, reduce taxes, or do both to expand the economy. However, in periods of inflation, the government could decrease spending or increase taxes, or both.
