the levying of tax (money paid in tax)
Economic Policy:
A government policy for maintaining economic growth of tax revenues.
the official procedure or system of rules governing affairs of state or diplomatic occasions.
Laws, considered collectively.
Distributive Policies:
Distributive policies extend goods and services to members of an organization, as well as distributing the costs of the goods/services amongst the members of the organization. Examples include government policies that impact spending for Welfare, Public Education, Highways and public safety, or a professional organization's benefits plan.
Regulatory Policies:
Regulatory policies, or mandates, limit the discretion of individuals and agencies, or otherwise compel certain types of behaviour. These policies are generally thought to be best applied when good behaviour can be easily defined and bad behaviour can be easily regulated and punished through fines or sanctions. An example of a fairly successful public regulatory policy is that of a speed limit.
