(p.159) 6. Impacts on Policies
North Carolina in the Connected Age

Michael L. Walden

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines how North Carolina has responded to the Connected Age in one area where citizens can have a collective voice: government policies. Government's impact on the economy is realized in two major ways. One is in how government collects public revenues, what mix of taxes and fees are used, and how both the total size of public revenues and the particular types of public charges affect private economic decision making. Second is how those revenues are spent, what programs are used, and the impacts of those programs on the functioning of the economy, and on the behavior and choices of households and businesses. Changes associated with the Connected Age have affected both of these public fiscal functions, while several fiscal changes have been enacted to attempt to alter the course of the Connected Age's trends.
