Fiscal Policy and Foreign Trade Research Paper

Excerpt from Research Paper :

Decisions and policy changes have implications all around the globe, not just in the nation that makes these changes. Improving a nation's current account, which is a product of a depreciating dollar where investors move their money to foreign currencies and trade products, also helps to boost the legitimacy and perceived strength of an economy.

In Canada, this has the effect of depreciating the currency and boosting aggregate demand, which also helps to boost the country's GDP (Beetsma, Giuliodori, and Klaasen, 2006). This is a positive development within the economic functions of a country like Canada, whose currency has much influence on its trade deficit.

This is to say that not only is the world's economic activity related to the overall health of every nation's economy, but the fiscal policies and tools used to help affect change and stability are also related as well, however complex these relationships are (Beetsma, Giuliodori, and Klaasen, 2006). Without a doubt, as the complexity of the global economy increases, nations will have to rely more on cooperation and synchronizing their efforts to help stabilize their economies than they ever have had to in the past.
