FROM THE OECD INSIGHTS BLOG and THE OECD OBSERVER

We need global policy coherence in trade and investment to boost growth

Mounting fears of another slowdown in the global economy call for bolder policy responses. Trade and investment are a case in point. Read more

It’s a gig, but is it a job?

Time was when the only people who had gigs were long-haired types who stayed in bed till noon and played in bars till dawn. These days, it seems, everyone's hopping from one gig to another – drivers, software designers, cleaners. Bye-bye full-time work, hello freedom and flexibility. Read more

Plans to tackle tax avoidance announced

The OECD presented today the final package of measures for a comprehensive, coherent and co-ordinated reform of the international tax rules to be discussed by G20 Finance Ministers at their meeting on 8 October, in Lima, Peru. The OECD/G20 Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project provides governments with solutions for closing the gaps in existing international rules that allow corporate profits to «disappear» or be artificially shifted to low/no tax environments, where little or no economic activity takes place.

Say goodbye to the 9-to-5

In the United States it's called "the 9-to-5"; in France it's métro, boulot, dodo –"subway, work, sleep"; in Japan it's personified as the "salaryman" and his female equivalent, the "office lady". Whatever it's called, the traditional job seems to be something we all identify with. Read more

The time-travelling policy maker

Are policy makers stuck in time? That may explain why incremental issues that cumulate and creep slowly across the temporal dimension pose such huge challenges. Politicians are clearly more comfortable in the here and now. Harder to deal with are slow-moving emergencies such as climate change, growing inequality and state pension reform, to name but a few. Rather than being the wolf at the door, these issues are the termites in the floor. Without action, the floor will collapse—guaranteed. Read more

Education post-2015: A currency to invest in

The world is no longer divided between rich and well-educated countries and poor and badly educated ones.
Importantly, when it comes to education, the post-2015 agenda for sustainable development is no longer just about providing more people with more years of schooling, but about making sure that individuals acquire a solid foundation of knowledge in key disciplines; that they develop creative, critical thinking and collaborative skills; and that they build character attributes, such as mindfulness, curiosity, courage and resilience. OECD Observer article

Progress for women and girls in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

The UN Sustainable Development Goals could be a real game changer for gender issues, with wins in fraught areas such as reproductive rights. But there will be challenges, and opposing voices, to contend with in the years ahead. OECD Observer article
