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. This issue covers the outlook to end-2009. 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 Corporate saving and investment: Recent trends and prospects.Click to Access:

Real GDP growth is set to accelerate in 2007, before moderating over the projection period as oil and metal prices stabilise at their current high levels. Domestic demand will remain strong, but the exceptional rates of investment growth observed in the first half will not be sustained. Fuelled by relaxed monetary conditions and the tightening of the labour market, inflation is set to hit double digits at the end of the year and will, in any case, exceed the central bank target of 8% by a wide margin.
