Civic Engagement in Policy Development

Macroeconomic policies play important roles in shaping citizens’ quality of life and, to a great extent, decide who gains and who loses in a society, even at the community level. These policies form the basis for a nation’s budget, its fiscal and monetary stance, its trade policies and exchange rates. They also translate into taxes, subsidies, interest rates, the pricing of commodities, imports and exports and the shape and structure of public sector investment programmes. Collectively, macroeconomic policies determine who pays what taxes, who receives what benefits, and what a country will or will not produce. Together, too, they shape not only the economic, but also the social dimension of growth.
