Government’s Macroeconomic management through fiscal, monetary and forex policies

23 Sep 2019 - 25 Sep 2019
MDP Number : 2
Area : Economics
Venue : XLRI Jamshedpur
Programme Directors : Arundhati Sarkar Bose

Introduction and Objective :

Performance of businesses is closely linked with the performance of the economy. A flourishing economy creates market for the business. On the other hand, an economy in the down cycle shrinks the market for business and industries. Growth of business in one nation may also depend on the economic situation in another nation. Government’s macroeconomic policies attempt to control the overall economic situation, particularly inflation, growth and employment and thereby create conducive environment for business. Broadly three types of policies are adopted for macroeconomic management of the economy – Fiscal policy, Monetary policy and policies for the foreign exchange market. Apart from this there are trade policies and sector specific policies.

This program is designed to elaborate (1) the linkages between different working fragments of the economy - how one affects the other, (2) the impact of macroeconomic policies on the economy, (3) the macroeconomic interlinkages between one nation and another

Methodology :

The program will be delivered with a combination of lectures, discussion on country cases and international macroeconomic events. A fair amount of interaction is expected from the participants.

Expected Participant :

The program will be most useful for upper-middle to senior-level managers, corporate and business planners, and consultants. Those who need to have an idea of the direction the economy is taking before taking a business decision will benefit immensely from this program.
