A strong economy is one that operates at its potential and delivers a high standard of living to the entire population. Monetary, fiscal, and tax policy all play important roles in determining the level and distribution of income, wealth, and other, broader measures of economic wellbeing. Equitable Growth promotes research to improve our understanding of how these policy tools can ensure the economy works for everyone, and reduce the impact of economic downturns.
