Policymakers attempt to solve deflation by making use of fiscal policy and monetary policy.

Deflation is a general decline in prices for goods and services and can be a serious economic problem.

Expansionary fiscal policy can help to solve the problem of deflation as it puts more money into consumers' and producers' hands to give them more purchasing power. It is designed to increase aggregate demand. This can be achieved in two ways.

Government spending can be increased.
