The relationship between finance, incomes, spending and the wider economy is complex.
Policies that target social, economic and environmental objectives typically involve a change in public spending, a change in the level and incidence of taxes and measures to engage investment by private finance.
You need guidance on what the impact of these changes might be. Our macroeconomic assessments provide you with reliable evidence on how interventions will affect the economy and what the consequences might be for government budgets.
With our help you will gain an understanding of any unintended consequences that will make policy less effective or undermine progress towards objectives in other areas.
Some challenging questions we can help you answer:
- How can the tax system be reformed to achieve social and environmental objectives?
- How effective was external macrostabilisation support in mitigating a country’s economic crisis?
- What will be the economic consequences of a transition towards keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees, or of a failure to make the transition? Which countries and sectors are most at risk? Could there be a sharp realignment of sentiment in financial markets?
