New eBook: Macroeconomic Policies for Wartime Ukraine

In the second volume of CEPR's Rapid Response Economics series, the authors outline macroeconomic policies to put the economy of Ukraine on a sustainable trajectory for the duration of the war.

As the conflict in Ukraine continues on into the latter months of 2022, this book outlines macroeconomic policies to put the economy of Ukraine on a sustainable
trajectory for the duration of the war. The authors emphasise at the outset that Ukraine’s crisis is not a setting for a typical macroeconomic adjustment programme. The country’s very survival - and Europe’s future - is at stake. This key constraint should condition the design of any programme. Extraordinary challenges must be matched by extraordinary policies and extraordinary support from Ukraine’s international partners.
