image of OECD Economic Outlook, Volume 2007 Issue 1
This issue of OECD's twice-yearly OECD Economic Outlook provides analysis of recent economic developments and economic projections for OECD and major non-OECD countries through the end of 2008. Its comprehensive statistical annex is a useful reference tool for international economic comparisons. Two special reports are included: one covers the effects of globalisation and how to maximise its benefits and minimise its adjustment costs. The second covers fiscal consolidation.

GDP slowed in the second half of last year, as a result of weaker external demand and a deceleration in public spending. Private investment continued to be buoyant, however, and is projected to remain strong in 2007 and 2008, underpinning GDP growth between 3½ and 4%. Inflation should remain around 4% until after mid-2007, easing thereafter to reach 3.3% by the end of 2008. The current account deficit is expected to widen gradually.
