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:

Economic growth is projected to ease to 7% by 2009 as the rate at which new export-oriented manufacturing capacity comes on stream declines. Unemployment is projected to fall to 9½ per cent in 2009. Further disinflation will be slowed by higher food prices, increases in indirect taxes and the assumed euro changeover in 2009.
