Macroeconomic policy will remain incredibly important, particularly as economic growth policy tends to remain the key policy with social policies added on to help those that are not benefited by economic growth. We all shape macroeconomics; this can be reflected on when it comes to employment, such as in regards to decent jobs, decent wages, and dignity. Time poverty is a major issue; people can be wealthy in money but time-poor, or work in the care economy and put in long hours of unpaid work. Domestic work is undervalued in the macroeconomy and is most often performed by women, leading to gender inequality and violence against women and girls. Changes in norms and attitudes must be made to live in a rights-based, inclusive society.
