monetary policy
Action taken by a central bank to stabilize a nation's economy. For example, by regulating money supply (printing more money or removing currency from circulation) and controlling the cost of money (raising and lowering interest rates), the central bank can stimulate a sagging economy or cool things off when it begins to grow at an undesirable rate.
