Introduction:Fiscal Policy Division (FPD) is one of the core departments of PIDE. As Fiscal Policy is considered one of the most dynamic and effective policy tool which can have an impact on the economy and thereby on the lives of people. Modern macroeconomics literature emphasizes both the short run and long run objectives of fiscal policy on the supply and demand side. Specifically for Pakistan it has been actively used as a policy tool to bring about the desired change. To have an academic discourse of such policies from the historical and contemporary state of the art literature context it requires an in-depth and ongoing analysis, hence FPD was created.
