Hide / Show Abstract

The OECD Economic Outlook is the OECD’s twice-yearly analysis of the major economic trends and prospects for the next two years.  Prepared by the OECD Economics Department, the Outlook puts forward a consistent set of projections for output, employment, prices and current balances based on a review of each member country and of the induced effect on each of them on international developments.

Coverage is provided for all OECD member countries as well as for selected non-member countries. Each issue includes a general assessment, chapters summarizing developments and providing projections for each individual country, three to five chapters on topics of current interest such as housing, and an extensive statistical annex with a wide variety of variables including debt. Subscribers to the print edition also have access to an online edition, published on internet six to eight weeks prior to the release of the print edition, and now available from Issue 1 from 1967 onwards.

Hide / Show Abstract

The OECD Economic Outlook analyses the major trends in the OECD area that will mark the next two years. It provides in-depth coverage of the economic policy measures each Member country should adopt for the years to come. Recent measures and forthcoming developments in selected non-OECD countries in East Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and South America are also evaluated in detail.

In addition to the themes featured in every semiannual edition, this issue also addresses these important questions: today’s downside risks for the world economy, the fundamental questions raised by the crisis in emerging markets,  macroeconomic policy challenges facing the euro area, the implications of recent stock market developments, and helping the long-term poor.
