THE IMPACT OF FISCAL POLICIES ON THE ECONOMIC GROWTH OF NIGERIA
1.1 BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
The growth and stabilization of the Nigerian economy has not been stable over the years as a result, the country’s economy has witnesses so many shocks and disturbances both internally and externally over the decades. Internally, the unstable investment and consumption patterns as well as the improper implementation of public policies, changes in future expectations and the accelerator are some of the factors responsible for it. Similarly, the external factors identified are wars, revolutions, population growth rates and migration, technological transfer and changes as well as the openness of the country’s Nigerian economy are some of the factors that could affect the implementation of fiscal policy.
The cyclical fluctuations in the country’s economic activities has led to the periodical increase in the country’s unemployment and inflation rates as well as the external sector disequilibria (Gbosi, 2001). In other words, fiscal policy is a major economic stabilization weapon that involves measure taken to regulate and control the volume, cost and availability as well as direction of money in an economy to achieve some specified macroeconomic policy objective and to counteract undesirable trends in the Nigerian economy (Gbosi, 1998). Therefore, they cannot be left to the market forces of demand and supply as well as other instruments of stabilization such as monetary and exchange rate policies among others, are used to counteract are problems identified (Ndiyo and Udah 2003). This may include either an increase or a decrease in taxes as well as government expenditures which constitute the bedrock of fiscal policy but in reality, government policy requires a mixture of both fiscal andmonetary policy instruments to stabilize an economy because none of these single instruments can cure all the problems in an economy (Ndiyo and Udah, 2003).
The Nigeria economy started experiencing recession form early 1980s that leads to a depression in the mid 1980s. This depression continued until early 1990s without recovering from it. As such, the government continually initiated fiscal policy measures that would tackle, stabilize and overcome the dwindling economy. Drawing the experience of the great depression, government policy measure to curb the depression was in the form of increase government spending (Nagayasu, 2003). According to Okunroumu, (1993), the management of the Nigerian economy in order to achieve macroeconomic stability has been unproductive and negative hence one cannot say the Nigeria economy is performing. This is evidence in the adverse inflationary trend, government fiscal policies, undulating foreign exchange rates, the fall and rise of gross domestic product, unfavourable balance of payments as well as increasing unemployment rates are all symptoms of growing macroeconomic instability. As such, the Nigeria economy is unable to function well in an environment because there is lowcapacity utilization attributed to shortage in foreign exchange as well as the volatile andunpredictable government fiscal policies in Nigeria (Isaksson, 2001).
1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
It is an established fact that market mechanism cannot solely perform all the economic functions in a country; and as such public policy like fiscal policy is required to stabilize, correct, guide and supplement the market forces. Fiscal policyis one of such policies that government uses to correct market imperfections and failure. In Nigeria, governments at various times had used these policies to stabilize and manage the economy with a view to achieving desired macroeconomic objectives such as promoting employment generation, ensuring economic stability, maintaining price stability and balance of payment viability, ensuring exchange rate stability and maintaining stable economic growth. The fiscal policy thrust used in manipulating the economy depends on the objectives that need to be achieved at any time period. Government intervention in the economy through fiscal policy has been to manipulate the receipt and expenditure sides of its budget in order to achieve certain national objectives. The reality however is that often, there have been wastages, some spending has been politicized, and there has been high level misappropriation, mismanagement and corruption. However, the researcher is examining the impact of fiscal policies in stabilization of the Nigeria economy.
