Economic Policy Reforms 2013

Going for Growth

Going for Growth is the OECD’s annual report highlighting developments in structural policies in OECD countries. It identifies structural reform priorities to boost real income for each OECD country and key emerging economies (Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa). The Going for Growth analysis also regularly takes stock of reform implementation in all the countries covered.

This report provides internationally comparable indicators that enable countries to assess their economic performance and structural policies in a wide range of areas. Each issue also has several thematic studies.

Hide / Show Abstract

At a time when macroeconomic policies are under acute pressure in many countries, the role of structural policies has come more into focus. Structural reforms are important both on the conventional grounds that they boost long-term growth and welfare but also because they can take some pressure off macroeconomic policies. Better structural policies will help achieve fiscal sustainability and provide greater leeway for monetary policy. Importantly, structural reforms can bolster confidence. For these reasons they are more than ever a priority for the OECD and feature prominently in G20 action plans and work agendas.
