OECD Economic Outlook, Volume 2006 Issue 2

Twice a year, the OECD Economic Outlook analyses the major trends and examines the economic policies required to foster high and sustainable growth in member countries. Developments in major non-OECD economies are also evaluated. The present issue covers the outlook to end-2008. Together with a wide range of cross-country statistics, the Outlook provides a unique tool to keep abreast of world economic developments.

In addition to the themes featured regularly, this issue contains a special chapter entitled Has the rise in debt made households more vulnerable?, which addresses the following questions:

  • What factors explain the observed rise in household debt in many OECD countries?
  • Have asset price movements offset the impact on households’ financial positions?
  • Are some sectors or groups particularly vulnerable to adverse asset market or income developments?

Hide / Show Abstract

Output growth is likely to moderate, reflecting weaker public spending and faltering external demand. But private investment and consumption should remain strong, and GDP growth is projected to reach 3½ to 4% in 2007 and 2008. After turning up in the third quarter of 2006, inflation should come down. With the terms of trade deteriorating, the current account deficit should widen gradually.
