As Ukraine faces the prospect of a prolonged war, there is a growing need to reassess the country’s macroeconomic strategy to ensure its long-term economic stability and survival. The current policy mix, which relies heavily on running down foreign reserves, tax suspension, and other temporary measures, is increasingly untenable. It could result in a major economic crisis that would cripple Ukraine’s ability to sustain its war effort over an extended period.
A new CEPR Rapid Response Economics report (download the report) outlines key macroeconomic policies to realign the economy towards a more sustainable trajectory, capable of withstanding the pressures of a drawn-out conflict. This requires prudence and caution in public finances, a durable nominal anchor, a resilient financial system, careful management of external balances, and flexibility and efficiency in the allocation of scarce resources. Sergei GURIEV is one of the authors of the report.
Recently appointed Provost at Sciences Po, Sergei GURIEV is a permanent faculty member at the Department since 2013 and a Senior Fellow to the Chair of Fundamental Research of the Institut Universitaire français (IUF). In 2016-19 he served as the Chief Economist of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
He teaches and does research in political economics, labour mobility, development and transition economics.
Prior to joining Sciences Po, he was the Rector of the New Economic School in Moscow.
