Topic Fiscal Policy

Congress plays an important role in combatting recessions and supporting economic growth. The money it sends to families, workers, businesses, and communities softens the toll of recessions. Well-designed fiscal policies boost income and employment for all Americans. Equitable Growth works to improve our understanding of different fiscal policies, including how they can reduce the pain of economic downturns, reduce inequality, and support growth.
