The Constitution provides the authority for government at national, state, and local levels to help enable the economy to operate, and to restrain concentrated economic power. Article I allows Congress to regulate interstate commerce, tax and coin money, and enforce contracts and copyrights. Governmental policy aims to resolve questions about taxes, regulation, federal budgets and deficits, and unemployment in ways that ensure freedom of economic choice and opportunity.
