Financial Term

For the financial term, we have monetary vs fiscal policy. Monetary policy is essentially the management of interest rates and the total supply of money in circulation. Typically, it is carried out by Central Banks in order to make sure that the economy is running smoothly. On the other hand, there is Fiscal Policy, which is a collective term for the taxing and spending actions of governments in the United States. Because this has more to do with the macro- side of things, these are typically determined by the legislative and executive branches. Monetary policy and fiscal policy are the two main regulators of the economy, and together, they have a great deal of influence over a nation’s economy, its businesses, and its consumers.

Current Major Business Impact

For our current major business impact, we have 36 states suing Google over Play Store Abuses. Google is currently overcharging all its customers and is being accused of many different illegal activities. Chief among them though is that they are being sued by department of Justice over antitrust laws. The allegation is that they are using exclusive distribution deals with phone companies in order to exclude all competition. In other words, Google is illegally monopolizing the digital advertising market and is not allowing smaller (or any other) company to advertise in big places. Many states claim that Google has been working with Facebook in an illegal agreement to manipulate online options over ad space, but Google refutes that statement with the claim that other companies like Amazon, Comcast Corp, and Facebook are also doing the same thing. This lawsuit is incredibly important because it aims to enforce Biden’s effort to promote competition across the economy.
