Measuring Globalisation: OECD Economic Globalisation Indicators 2010

image of Measuring Globalisation: OECD Economic Globalisation Indicators 2010

This second edition of the OECD Economic Globalisation Indicators presents a broad range of indicators showing the magnitude and intensity of globalisation. This process is becoming increasingly important for policymakers and other analysts, hence the need for a volume that brings together the existing measures, based on national data sources and comparable across countries. Together, the indicators shed new light on financial, technological and trade interdependencies within OECD and non-OECD countries.

Measures of globalisation include indicators on capital movements and foreign direct investments, international trade, the economic activity of multinational firms and the internationalisation of technology. In addition, the 2010 edition also includes indicators linked to the current financial crisis, portfolio investments, environmental aspects and the emergence of global value chains.

Trade in intermediate goods: geographical distribution

The geographical distribution of intermediate imports of goods and services shows that in value the largest transactions are within and among three regions: Europe, North America and Asia. In the OECD area most inputs are sourced from within the OECD area; when accession countries and enhanced engagement economies are added, about 85% of trade flows are accounted for.
