Increasingly, peace agreements and economic development programs reference the centrality of sound economic policy and a stable macroeconomic framework in state-building efforts. But few practitioners have the background to know what this means and to understand the relationship between their areas of responsibility and the policies needed to attain macroeconomic stability. Even fewer feel able to contribute meaningfully to designing and implementing strategies to attain and maintain this fundamental end state. This manual aims to serves as an introductory guide to and reference document on macroeconomics. It is intended for noneconomists who may be involved in peace negotiations and would benefit from a clearer understanding of the underlying macroeconomic issues.
