      Further, fiscal policy in a poor country may be used to reduce inequalities in income and wealth distribution by means of taxes and government expenditure. It has also been argued that since the bulk of money supply in an underdeveloped economy is in the form of currency rather than bank deposits, the central bank can regulate with greater efficiency the rate of spending by controlling the currency as such.

It also undertakes the policy of planned investment in the public sector. Recent attempts at liberalizing and reform of financial markets particularly the recapitalization of banks and other financial institutions in Nigeria and elsewhere are gradually providing the latitude required to implement monetary policy frameworks by the relevant central banks. Obviously, taxation and public expenditure is a powerful instrument in the hands of public authority which greatly affect the changes in disposal income, consumption and investment. Sometimes, even if the fiscal action is taken at a right time, in quantitative or qualitative terms, it may not be adequate or appropriate.
