Topic: The Concept <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Because markets are imperfect, government is prompted to intervene with economic policies.
  • Economic policies are government actions designed to affect economic activity and pursue one or more economic goals.
Policies can take the form of:
  • Laws passed by legislatures.
  • Administrative actions taken by elected executives.
  • Rules set forth by government agencies.
  • Decisions made through the courts.
The government has four types of policies.
  • Fiscal policy: Based on government's power to collect taxes from the public and spend those funds as it chooses. Used for income redistribution and macroeconomic performance.
  • Monetary policy: Based on government's centralized control of the money supply. Used for macroeconomic performance.
  • Regulatory policy: Based on government's ability to enact laws, rules and restrictions. Used for efficiency and equity
  • Judicial policy: Based on government's ability to enforce laws through the courts. Used for efficiency and equity

NEGOTIABLE ORDER OF WITHDRAWAL ACCOUNTS

Interest-paying checking accounts maintained by commercial banks, savings and loan associations, and mutual savings banks. These function much like standard demand deposit checking accounts in that the funds can be withdrawn "on demand" by writing a check, but an interest is paid on the outstanding balance. Negotiable order of withdrawal (NOW) accounts are one type of checkable deposits. Others are demand deposits (standard checking accounts), share draft accounts, and automatic transfer service (ATS) accounts.
