In order to understand what is fiscal policy we need to understand what demand pull inflation is When the prices of goods rise because of increasing demand this is known a demand pull inflation and fiscal policies are se to fight his. Government will use deflationary fiscal policy. This would mean that government will increase taxation and/ or cut government expense when taxes will increase consumer will spend less. By increasing corporation tax people will invest less. By reducing al of this the inflationary gap would be reduced. If there is less hen full employment then government would use a different fiscal policy which would raise the supply rather reduce the demand. Government might give grant sot firms for selling up in development areas cut corporation tax and grant subsidies. Other fiscal policies are aimed at reducing cost push inflation. Lowering corporation tax would reduce the cost of firms subsidising production cost and lowering wage raised in the public sector would reduce firms cost. Lowering expenditure by more than tax revenue is a fiscal policy if cause of inflation is because of increase in money supply

Fiscal policy is a very sensitive counter cyclical instrument in the hands of the state. It should be very intelligently used. If it is combined with monetary policy, its efficiency can be further heightened.

Fiscal policy nowadays is considered to be a powerful anti cyclical weapon in the hands of the government. Fiscal policy involves the process of shaping the public finance with a view to reduce fluctuation in the business cycle and attainment of full employment without inflation. If at any time, the government finds that private instrument is taking at a very fast speed and the country is likely to be threatened with inflation, it discourage private works programs, levies heavy taxes on business profits to discourage private investment, reduces purchasing power by taking loans from the people, prepares surplus budgets to reduce public debts, etc.

All these fiscal measures greatly help in curbing the inflationary tendency in the economy. If , on the other hand, the country's faced with depression, the government, launches its public works programs so that deficiency in the investment is made up, the government spends money on the construction of new canals, new buildings, new post offices and greatly helps increasing income , stimulating consumption expenditure and reducing un-employment. In order to encourage private investment, the government reduces taxes on business profits. The government also prepares deficit budgets and the deficit is met by the loans.

Fiscal Policy is the policy which directs the government towards a certain intended direction. It should always be related with the overall policy of the government. Government may have certain long termed policy as well. So that while making fiscal policy, the  long termed plans and policies of the government should also be considered, otherwise, the government will be failed to achieve the targeted goal in a long term. Likewise, the citizens, pressure groups as well as civil society should also play an important role to shape the fiscal policy of the government.

Fiscal policy refers to the way in which a government, political party, or other organization handles its finances. During election campaigns, it is very common to hear about the fiscal policies of candidates and the various parties. In many ways, these are the most important aspect of the campaign as they effect issues of concern to all, including taxation, government spending on social and welfare programs and potential government cutbacks in the public sector.

A government's fiscal policy usually becomes the most clear when the minister of finance delivers his/her budget. This budget outlines where the government intends to increase, or decrease spending, as well as any potential tax breaks. A government's fiscal policy, however, normally only addresses issues that it has direct control over, namely public spending. It does not generally involve direct, government intervention in the economy, or the private sector. As such, issues such as dealing with inflation, or lowering interest rates would not usually be considered something relating to fiscal policy.
