2005 OECD Economic Surveys: United States 2005

This economic survey examines the key challenges facing the US economy including fiscal sustainability and budgetary discipline, fiscal relations across levels of government, adjustment of the current account, and labour market issues such as trade adjustment assistance and reducing work disincentives in programmes for the disabled. It also advocates strengthening the electricity grid and adopting economic instruments to curtail energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, which are high by international standards.
