We use theoretical frameworks and quantitative analysis to develop an understanding of key macroeconomic variables: output, employment, inflation, interest rates, and exchange rates. We emphasize the importance of policy, including monetary policy, fiscal policy, and the financial and regulatory environment, in shaping the global macroeconomic environment and its impact on business decisions. We consider the importance of technological change, globalization and trade policy, income inequality, demographics, education policy and labour market mobility, sustainability, financial markets and institutions, and political economy.
