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, government spending, 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 general debt.

Hide / Show Abstract

The OECD Economic Outlook analyses the current economic trends in the OECD area and makes projections for 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 economies in East Asia; Central and Eastern Europe, particularly Russia; and South America are also evaluated in detail.

In addition to the themes featured in every semi-annual edition, this issue 65 also addresses these important issues: improving labour-market conditions, dealing with climate change effectively,  the lessons of the recent episodes of capital flow instability, the factors behind the widening of current account imbalances, is protectionism creeping back and trends in market openness.
