In the 1980s, the richest 10% of the population had 7 times the income of the poorest 10%; they now have almost 10 times the income of the poorest 10%.

Find out where your country stands for income inequality and come share your views at the OECD Forum 2015, Paris, 2-3 June.

Forum 2015 Issues


Investment is essential to place economies on sustainable growth paths while addressing inequalities, fostering innovation, helping the transition towards low-carbon economies and financing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Unemployment increases the risk of poverty, ill health as well as the levels of inequality within our societies. It undermines the confidence and trust of citizens in governments, markets, businesses and institutions at large.


I‌nvestment, new technologies and business models are essential to spur our transition to an economy combining sustainable growth with reduced impact on the environment, and to harness the latter as a source of new inclusive growth. 


Ongoing innovation is offering promising solutions to challenges in areas such as health, ageing, climate change, food security, and represents an increasingly significant source of future economic growth.
