Video title: Making Economic Policy

Use this American Government by the People video entitled Making Economic Policy to study how national government influences how wealth is produced and distributed primarily via fiscal policy, monetary policy and regulatory policy. Learn how Fiscal policy is implemented by the federal budget, which is annually negotiated between the president and Congress, and how Monetary policy is primarily under the control of the Federal Reserve System, which has considerable independence from both Congress and the president as it works to supply sufficient amounts of money and credit so that the economy will grow, but not so much that it will lead to inflation. 

Learn about Making Economic Policy.
