This course begins by discussing budgetary policy, resource allocation, distribution of income and wealth, and external stability. A major priority of budgetary policy is the achievement of domestic economic stability also known as internal stability. With this course, you will learn that the best way to examine the impact of budgetary policy is to first divide the budget result into the structural and the cyclical components. You will also learn that the structural component gives the best indicator of the fiscal stance of the budget.
