    The Federal Reserve set the limit to the amount of money that 's allowed to be borrowed from the government to banks. So increasing the interest rates would cause banks to increase their rates as well if they want to make money as well. As a result, consumers spend less, causing prices to drop and slowing down the inflation. Secondly, the reserve requirements must increase. When the reserve requirement increases, it allows banks to hold more money to cover up the costs of withdrawals, thus limiting inflation because consumers will borrow less and decrease spending.…

    Money demand and the interest rate are directly correlated so the interest rate goes up also. As previously discussed, the interest rate increases causes business to decrease their investments because it costs more for them to borrow the money to expand their business. This decrease in investment affects output negatively, bringing it back down though not as much because this effect is secondary. The secondary effect for fiscal policy is known as the crowding-out effect, the tendency for increases in government spending to cause reductions in private investment spending. In this case the crowding-out effect was great due to large sensitivity in the interest…

    After a while, though, when tax size keeps increasing, tax revenue actually starts to decrease at some point. In short, as tax size rises, revenue from the tax rises in the beginning, but then decreases. The curve’s maximum is the most efficient point, as it is where the tax revenue is the highest. Putting this in a real-world perspective, based on the diagram, if a government raises taxes then more revenue should be made, putting more money towards government-funded programs (education, healthcare, welfare, etc). However, raising the tax rate when it is already high actually reduces tax revenue, reducing the amount of money that could benefit the people as a whole and thus the economy.…

    This essentially means borrowers are paid and savers are penalized. This tactic is used to get consumers to spend more and save less, however, I do not think the Fed will do this since the effect of the policy is uncertain and risky. The Fed’s main goal in coming years is not to create economic growth, but to reduce spending and inflation. The distribution gap between the wealthy and the poor has become larger in recent years, especially with the diminishing middle-class. To reduce this gap, Trump wants tax cuts to entice spending, but during uncertainty, households will be inclined to save more and spend less.…

    If the national debt grows, interest rates and how much the government owes increases, and then the government will spend all their resources and money on paying off the debt.
