About the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development The OECD brings governments, business, labour, academia, and civil society organisations together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world, and to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change. We analyse and compare data to predict future trends. And we set international standards on numerous issues, from the safety of chemicals to the quality of fruit and vegetables. We look, too, at issues that directly affect the lives of ordinary people, such as how much they pay in taxes and social security. We compare how school systems around the world are readying young people for modern life, and how different countries’ pension systems will look after their citizens in old age. This information is published in books, journals and data services, all of which are available via our global knowledge base, the OECD iLibrary (www.oecd-ilibrary.org). OECD Core Values • • • • •

bETTEr LIFE INDEX 4

OECD Better Life Index For more than 50 years, the OECD has been driving better policies for better lives. On its 50th anniversary in 2011, OECD launched the Better Life Initiative, a web portal enabling users to visualise progress graphically. By asking the question, “How’s life?”, across 11 fundamental determinants of well-being, the OECD incorporates the quality of citizens’ lives into a common understanding of progress. Each user can create their own Better Life Index (BLI), comparing well-being in their country to that of others, and their own country’s overall performance with their personal priorities. By using this instrument, they also discover how each of the 11 factors affects quality of life overall, and learn about the best policy practices in these areas. In 2012, the portal was enhanced with updated data. Create your own BLI at www.oecd.org/betterlifeindex

This presentation of the Better Life Index in book form shows how OECD countries compare across 11 determinants of well-being: housing, income, jobs, community, education, environment, governance, health, life satisfaction, safety, and work-life balance. It presents the numbers behind the comparisons, thus making it a unique tool for comparing countries.

Few subjects are as controversial – and poorly understood – as globalisation. While in its broadest sense, economic globalisation is as old as trade itself, the recent fi nancial crisis has amplifi ed the complexity associated with the global interconnectedness of the world’s economies and its ramifi cations on our livelihoods. This publication reviews the major turning points in the history of economic integration, and in particular the pace at which it has accelerated since the 1990s. It also considers its impact on four crucial areas: employment, development, the environment and fi nancial stability. Does globalisation foster development or create inequality? Does it promote or destroy jobs? Is it damaging to the environment or compatible with its preservation? Are we heading towards de-globalisation or can globalisation in fact enable recovery?

The main impacts on water availability and use are due to human activity. Economic expansion and rising living standards will continue to drive the demand for water in the years to come. Over 90% of projected population growth by 2050 (3 billion more people) will be in developing countries, often in regions that already are water scarce. This book looks at how issues ranging from infrastructure fi nancing to climate change infl uence water resources, as well as at the importance of water in activities ranging from energy production to agriculture.

The balance of economic power is shifting. Countries that were once poor are becoming economic powerhouses. Yet poverty persists worldwide, depriving billions of people of basic necessities and the prospects of creating a better life. How are we responding to this challenge? This book explores the multi-faceted world of aid and development co-operation – a range of global, and sometimes contested, efforts aimed at reducing the impact of poverty. It traces the history of these efforts, explains where they come from and where they are going, and asks whether they are achieving as much as they could. It also examines some of the ways in which development efforts can be made more effective in achieving lasting benefi ts through good governance and the creation of a deeper partnership between developed and developing countries. And it looks at how the economic emergence of countries like China and India is bringing a new dynamic to development co-operation.

How did the sharpest global slowdown in more than six decades happen, and how can recovery be made sustainable? OECD Insights: From Crisis to Recovery traces the causes, course and consequences of the “Great Recession”. It explains how a global build up of liquidity, coupled with poor regulation, created a fi nancial crisis that quickly began to make itself felt in the real economy, destroying businesses and raising unemployment to its highest level in decades. Is the worst of the crisis over? A swift return to strong growth appears unlikely and employment will take several years to get back to pre-crisis levels. High levels of public and private debt mean cutbacks in savings are likely to become the main priority, meaning the impact of the recession will continue to be felt for years to come.

In the three decades before the recent economic downturn, wage gaps widened and household income inequality increased in a large majority of OECD countries. This occurred even as countries were going through a period of sustained economic and employment growth. This report analyses the major underlying forces behind these developments. It examines to which extent economic globalisation, skill-biased technological progress and institutional and regulatory reforms have had an impact on the distribution of earnings. The report further provides evidence of how changes in family formation and household structures have altered household earnings and income inequality. And it documents how tax and benefi t systems have changed in the ways they redistribute household incomes. The report discusses which policies are most promising to counter increases in inequalities and how the policy mix can be adjusted when public budgets are under strain.

First launched in 2010, Perspectives on Global Development (PGD) is OECD’s annual fl agship publication on emerging development issues. The PGD takes the new geography of economic growth, poverty and power as a point of departure. Each year, the report identifi es, analyses and provides evidence and policy solutions to the most pressing global development challenges in the new multipolar world. It provides an overview of global trends and structural transformations in the world economy and informs policy makers in developing countries on the implications in the formulation and implementation of national policies. Each year, the report focuses on a different topic covering diverse socio-economic facets of development from trade, development fi nance, infrastructure, production development and innovation to gender, employment, migration, fi scal and social policies. During the past decade, the global economic centre of gravity has shifted eastwards and southwards, creating new opportunities for economic co-operation, trade and investment but also new challenges. This “shifting wealth” is a game changer for economic policy and is at the centre of the fi rst three editions of the Perspectives on Global Development, which document the phenomenon (PGD 2010) and analyse its implications for social cohesion (PGD 2012) and productive growth strategies (PGD 2013).

Tax and Development: Aid Modalities for Strengthening Tax Systems examines the aid instruments that donors can use to assist developing countries in strengthening their tax systems. From general or sector budget support, to basket fi nancing modalities and other joint instruments, stand-alone bilateral aid and South-South regional programmes, it looks at the strengths and weaknesses of each modality. It considers the needs and context to which each one best responds and describes how mixed “packages” may often best fi t the bill. Crucially, it also affords thoughtful insights into how tax reform can yield governance dividends and provides examples from the experience of a number of developing countries, culminating in six illuminating case studies in tax reform. Although they consider diffi culties as well as successes, they offer practical pointers to future directions for research and action.

Latin America has weathered the recent turbulence in the global economy with relative strength, but the region now faces – beyond the short-term global uncertainty – important medium term risks. Policy makers need to make use of the policy space at their disposal to lay the foundations for inclusive and sustainable growth. SMEs play a key role as they are an integral part of the economic fabric, comprising over 95% of fi rms in the region as well as providing employment for over 60% of the region’s inhabitants. Nevertheless, relative to SMEs in the OECD, on average SMEs in Latin America exhibit low levels of relative productivity and weak links with the rest of the economy. With this perspective in mind, the report explores key policy areas that address some of the main challenges to SMEs in the region including access to fi nance, skill development, innovation, and productive development.

EDUCATION

Arts education is often said to be a means of developing critical and creative thinking. Arts education has also been argued to enhance performance in non-arts academic subjects such as mathematics, science, reading and writing, and to strengthen students’ academic motivation, self-confi dence, and ability to communicate and cooperate effectively. Arts education thus seems to have a positive impact on the three subsets of skills that we defi ne as “skills for innovation”: subject-based skills, including in non-arts subjects; skills in thinking and creativity; and behavioural and social skills. This report examines the state of empirical knowledge about the impact of arts education on these kinds of outcomes. The kinds of arts education examined include arts classes in school (classes in music, visual arts, theatre, and dance), arts-integrated classes (where the arts are taught as a support for an academic subject), and arts study undertaken outside of school (e.g., private music lessons; out-of-school classes in theatre, visual arts, and dance). The report does not deal with education about the arts or cultural education, which may be included in all kinds of subjects.

Most parents know instinctively that spending more time with their children and being actively involved in their education will give their children a good head-start in life. But since most parents have to juggle competing demands at work and home, there never seems to be enough time or they feel ill-equipped to help. This book from the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) has some good news for concerned parents: it does not require a Ph.D or unlimited hours for parents to make a difference in their children’s education. In fact, many parentchild activities that are associated with better reading performance among students involve relatively little time and no specialised knowledge. What these activities do demand is genuine interest and active engagement.

Recognising both the complexity of skills policies and the potential for peer learning, the OECD has developed a global Skills Strategy that helps countries to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their national skills systems, benchmark them internationally, and develop policies that can transform better skills into better jobs, economic growth and social inclusion. This book presents a strategy that will help countries reach the goal of having and making the best use of a high-quality pool of skills. The OECD Skills Strategy shifts the focus from traditional measures of skills, such as years of initial education and training or qualifi cations attained, to a much broader perspective that includes the skills people can acquire, use and maintain – and also lose – over a whole lifetime. Without suffi cient investment in skills, people languish on the margins of society, technological progress does not translate into economic growth, and countries can no longer compete in an increasingly knowledge-based global society. In addition, the book points out that for skills to retain their value, they must be continuously maintained and upgraded throughout life so that people can collaborate, compete and connect in ways that drive economies and societies forward.

This 30th edition of the OECD Employment Outlook examines recent labour market trends and short-term prospects in OECD countries. It fi nds that the recovery from the recent economic and fi nancial crisis has been slow and uneven. Unemployment remains unacceptably high in many countries and long-term unemployment has risen, increasing the risk of higher unemployment becoming entrenched. An analysis of how labour markets weather economic shocks shows that policies to lower structural unemployment also help to dampen the adverse effects of economic downturns on unemployment, earnings losses and earnings inequality. The report documents the decline in the labour share of national income that has been occurring in many OECD countries, primarily as a result of globalisation and technological change. Finally, the impact of climatechange mitigation policies on the labour market is examined.

Key policy messages include: • Greater gender equality in educational attainment has a strong positive effect on economic growth. • Stereotyping needs to be addressed in educational choices at school from a young age. For example, adapt teaching strategies and material to increase engagement of boys in reading and of girls in maths and science; encourage more girls to follow science, engineering and maths courses in higher education and seek employment in these fi elds. • Good and affordable childcare is a key factor for better gender equality in employment. But change also has to happen at home as the bulk of housework and caring is left to women in many countries. Policy can support such change, for example, through parental leave policies that explicitly include fathers. • Support policies for women-owned enterprises need to target all existing fi rms, not just start-ups and small enterprises. Equal access to fi nance for male and female entrepreneurs needs to be assured.

EMpLOYMENT

Gender gaps are pervasive in all walks of economic life and imply large losses in terms of foregone productivity and living standards to the individuals concerned and the economy. This new OECD report focuses on how best to close these gender gaps under four broad headings: gender equality, social norms and public policies, gender equality in education, and employment and entrepreneurship.

Electricity use is growing worldwide, providing a range of energy services: lighting, heating and cooling, specifi c industrial uses, entertainment, information technologies, and mobility. Because its generation remains largely based on fossil fuels, electricity is also the largest and the fastest-growing source of energy-related CO2 emissions, the primary cause of human-induced climate change. Forecasts from the IEA and others show that “decarbonising” electricity and enhancing end-use effi ciency can make major contributions to the fi ght against climate change. Global and regional trends in electricity supply and demand indicate the magnitude of the decarbonisation challenge ahead. As climate concerns become an essential component of energy policy-making, the generation and use of electricity will be subject to increasingly strong policy actions by governments to reduce their associated CO2 emissions. Despite these actions, and despite very rapid growth in renewable energy generation, signifi cant technology and policy challenges remain if this unprecedented, essential transition is to be achieved. This book provides an authoritative resource on progress to date in this area, with statistics related to CO2 and the electricity sector across ten regions of the world. It also presents topical analyses on meeting the challenge of rapidly curbing CO2 emissions from electricity, from both a policy and technology perspective.

With ample recoverable resources, natural gas seems destined for a bright future. It nevertheless faces many challenges to increase its share in the primary energy mix, including insuffi cient upstream development, inadequate pricing structure, competition from other fuels, and geopolitical issues. The IEA Medium-Term Gas Market Report 2012 reviews how gas markets managed the challenges of 2011, from the consequences of the Fukushima incident to the unrest in the Middle East and North Africa to a further deteriorating economy. It gives detailed gas supply, demand and trade forecasts up to 2017, by region as well as for key countries, while investigating many of today’s crucial questions: • Will regional gas markets diverge further or will the shale gase revolution spread worldwide? • Will North America become a signifi cant LNG exporter? • Can China meet its goal of doubling gas consumption in four years? • Will natural gas replace nuclear energy in the US power sector? • Can a spot price emerge in Asia?

Amid a fragile economy and widely diverging regional gas prices, the report provides an in-depth look at future changes in trade patterns as markets absorb a second wave of LNG supply.

As the fastest growing sector and accounting for around a fi fth of worldwide electricity production, renewable energy has emerged as a signifi cant source in the global mix. Much of this success has stemmed from signifi cant policy effort and economic incentives at the country level, particularly in the OECD. Massive investment has taken place on a global scale, with costs for most technologies falling steadily. As a result, renewable energy technologies are becoming more economically attractive in an increasing range of countries and circumstances, with China, India and Brazil emerging as major deployment grounds. This new annual IEA publication, Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report 2012, provides a key benchmark, assessing the current state of play of renewable energy, identifying the main drivers and barriers to deployment and projecting renewable energy electricity capacity and generation through 2017. Starting with an in-depth analysis of key country-level markets, which represent 80% of renewable electricity generation today, the report examines the prospects for renewable energy fi nance and provides a global outlook for each renewable electricity technology. The report analyses enablers and barriers to renewable energy deployment in detail, examining larger electricity market issues that have implications for renewable development, including countrylevel demand projections, anticipated changes in conventional generating capacity and power system integration.

Humanity has witnessed unprecedented growth and prosperity in the past decades, with the size of the world economy more than tripling and population increasing by over 3 billion people since 1970. This growth, however, has been accompanied by environmental pollution and natural resource depletion. The current growth model and the mismanagement of natural assets could ultimately undermine human development. The OECD Environmental Outlook to 2050 asks, “What will the next four decades bring?” Based on joint modelling by the OECD and the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, it looks forward to the year 2050 to fi nd out what demographic and economic trends might mean for the environment if the world does not adopt more ambitious green policies. It also looks at what policies could change that picture for the better. This Outlook focuses on four areas: climate change, biodiversity, freshwater and health impacts of pollution. These four key environmental challenges were identifi ed by the previous Environmental Outlook to 2030 (OECD, 2008) as “Red Light” issues requiring urgent attention.

Developing growth strategies that promote greener lifestyles requires a good understanding of the factors that affect people’s behaviour towards the environment. Based on periodic surveys of more than 10 000 households across a number of countries and areas, this publication presents responses from the most recent round of the OECD survey implemented in 2011 in energy, food, transport, waste and water - and in 11 countries: Australia, Canada, Chile, France, Israel, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Analysis comparing the data across countries, policy conditions and households’characteristics reveals which measures most effectively change behaviour. Each round of the survey also allows tracking changes over time and exploring new emerging issues. This book is a milestone for all those interested by the challenging question of ways to promote greener behaviour, from policy makers to individual citizens.

This report demonstrates the benefi ts of a green growth perspective for water resources management (WRM). It pays particular attention to transition: how to inject green growth elements in WRM policies, or in national water strategies, and how to make reform happen (what are the benefi ts; how they can materialise). The report builds on OECD analyses and a wealth of case studies collected by several institutions. It covers four main issues: allocation (where is water most needed?); investment in ecologically sensitive water storage and distribution systems (how to guarantee access to the resource); water-related innovation (e.g. smart water systems, which can save water, energy and investment costs) and the policies which can stimulate it; and water supply and sanitation (as improved access yields signifi cant benefi ts on health, the environment and the economy).

Each year, the OECD circulates a survey on the borrowing needs of member countries. The responses are incorporated in the OECD Sovereign Borrowing Outlook to provide regular updates of trends and developments associated with sovereign borrowing requirements and debt levels from the perspective of public debt managers. The Outlook makes a policy distinction between funding strategy and borrowing requirements. The central government marketable gross borrowing needs, or requirements, are calculated on the basis of budget defi cits and redemptions. The funding strategy entails decisions on how borrowing needs are going to be fi nanced using different instruments (e.g. long-term, short-term, nominal, indexed, etc.) and distribution channels. Accordingly, the OECD Sovereign Borrowing Outlook provides data and information on borrowing needs and funding policies for the OECD area and country groupings, including: • • • • •

The updated Guidelines include new recommendations on human rights abuse and company responsibility for their supply chains, making them the fi rst inter-governmental agreement in this area. The Guidelines establish that fi rms should respect human rights in every country in which they operate. Companies should also respect environmental and labour standards, for example, and have appropriate due diligence processes in place to ensure this happens. These include issues such as paying decent wages, combating bribe solicitation and extortion, and the promotion of sustainable consumption. The Guidelines are a comprehensive, non-binding code of conduct that OECD member countries and others have agreed to promote among the business sector. A new, tougher process for complaints and mediation has also been put in place.

As fi nancial markets put more and more pressure on governments to reduce their defi cits and debts, sub-central levels of government are a key player in the implementation of national strategies. The room for manoeuvre to implement consolidations strategies co-ordinated across levels of government highly depends on the institutional structure of intergovernmental relations, and the effectiveness of their multi-level governance structure. This was already the case for recovery strategies, in the beginning of the crisis. This report provides an overview of the institutional and fi nancial relations across levels of government that enables policy makers evaluate their position and identify good practices for mobilising sub-central governments for national growth, equity and stability objectives. This report is divided into two parts: the fi rst part is analytical and the second part provides institutional and quantitative country information and comparisons.

Access to fi nance represents one of the most signifi cant challenges for entrepreneurs and for the creation, survival and growth of small businesses. As governments address this challenge, they are running up against a major and longstanding obstacle to policy making: insuffi cient evidence and data. Better data is needed to understand the fi nancing needs of SMEs and entrepreneurs and to provide the basis for informed institutional and public policy decisions. This fi rst edition of Financing SMEs and Entrepreneurs: An OECD Scoreboard represents a major step in addressing this obstacle by establishing a comprehensive international framework for monitoring SMEs’ and entrepreneurs’ access to fi nance over time. Comprising 18 countries, including Canada, Chile, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, Korea, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States, the Scoreboard presents data for a number of debt, equity and fi nancing framework condition indicators. Taken together, they provide governments and other stakeholders with a tool to understand SMEs’ fi nancing needs, to support the design and evaluation of policy measures and to monitor the implications of fi nancial reforms on SMEs’ access to fi nance.

In the wake of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident, questions are being raised about the future of the uranium market, including as regards the number of reactors expected to be built in the coming years, the amount of uranium required to meet forward demand, the adequacy of identifi ed uranium resources to meet that demand and the ability of the sector to meet reactor requirements in a challenging investment climate. This 24th edition of the “Red Book”, a recognised world reference on uranium jointly prepared by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency and the International Atomic Energy Agency, provides analyses and information from 42 producing and consuming countries in order to address these and other questions. It offers a comprehensive review of world uranium supply and demand as well as data on global uranium exploration, resources, production and reactor-related requirements. It also provides substantive new information on established uranium production centres around the world and in countries developing production centres for the fi rst time. Projections of nuclear generating capacity and reactor-related requirements through 2035, incorporating policy changes following the Fukushima accident, are also featured, along with an analysis of long-term uranium supply and demand issues.

Meeting the growing demand for energy, and electricity in particular, while addressing the need to curb greenhouse gas emissions and to ensure security of energy supply, is one of the most diffi cult challenges facing the world’s economies. No single technology can respond to this challenge, and the solution which policy makers are seeking lies in the diversifi cation of energy sources. Although nuclear energy currently provides over 20% of electricity in the OECD area and does not emit any carbon dioxide during production, it continues to be seen by many as a controversial technology. Public concern remains over its safety and the management of radioactive waste, and fi nancing such a capital-intensive technology is a complex issue. The role that nuclear power will play in the future depends on the answers to these questions, several of which are provided in this up-to-date review of the status of nuclear energy, as well as on the outcome of research and development on the nuclear fuel cycle and reactor technologies.

Global Value Chains (GVCs) have exploded in the past decade and refer to the international dispersion of design, production, assembly, marketing and distribution of services, activities and products. Different stages in the production process are increasingly located across different economies, and intermediate inputs like parts and components are produced in one country and then exported to other countries for further production and/or assembly in fi nal products. The functional and spatial fragmentation that has occurred within GVCs has signifi cantly reshaped the global economic landscape, thereby raising some new major policy challenges for OECD countries and emerging countries alike: trade policy, competitiveness, upgrading and innovation and the management of global systemic risk.

The Internet is now a fundamental infrastructure supporting the economy and is fi rmly in its 2nd stage of development, having evolved from a data network connecting PCs with wires to a much broader network of new portable devices from mobile phones to tablet computers. It is also on the cusp of a much larger expansion to objects that typically did not have communications capabilities: the “Internet of things” is projected to have more connections than the people using them. Supported by time series data, this publication begins with an overview of trends and highlights how the internet sector has proven to be resilient during the recent economic crisis. It then examines the various drivers and impacts of Internet use and deployment, as well as emerging technologies, e-health, digital content, security and privacy, and refl ects on a methodology for measuring the Internet economy.

Space systems – earth observation and meteorological satellites, space communications, global positioning systems – are becoming an indispensable tool in the international effort to track and better understand our atmosphere, oceans, forests, fresh water resources and land use. As global food supplies increasingly face political, demographic, economic and climate-related challenges, space applications play a fundamental role in providing more accurate and timely information on agricultural production prospects as well as on fi sh stocks’ evolution. This publication reviews key trends in global food supplies and provides an assessment of current and forthcoming capabilities of space technologies. It also examines diverse socio-economic impacts which may be derived from the use of selected space applications (e.g. improved precision agriculture practices using GPS, from planting to harvest, can reduce in some cases input costs and increase productivity), while considering the sustainability of different economic models in place today.


Making Innovation Policy Work

The book explores emerging topics in innovation policy for more inclusive and sustainable growth, building on concrete examples. The book develops the notion of experimental innovation policy – policies which integrate monitoring and feedback to improve policy impact and policy implementation. Rather than undertaking monitoring and evaluation at the end of a policy programme, monitoring is incorporated from the outset, at the policy design stage and occurs continuously to have the greatest impact on policy implementation. This approach should help improve the quality and effi ciency of public expenditures supporting innovation policy. Experimental policy making is particularly important for new and emerging innovation domains, where the scope for learning and improvement is the greatest. To make the discussion as concrete and relevant as possible for practitioners and policy makers, three emerging domains of innovation policy are explored in greater detail: innovative entrepreneurship, green innovation, and pro-poor or base-of-the-pyramid (BoP) innovation.

More than fi ve million new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year in OECD countries. Mortality rates are declining, but not as fast as for other big killers such as heart disease, and cancer survival rates show almost a four-fold difference across countries. In short, many countries are not doing as well as they could in the fi ght against cancer. Cancer Care: Assuring Quality to Improve Survival surveys the policy trends in cancer care over recent years and looks at survival rates to identify the why some countries are doing better than others. It sets out what governments should do to reduce the burden of cancer in their countries. As well as an adequate level of resourcing, a comprehensive national cancer control plan appears critical, emphasising initiatives such as early detection and fast-track treatment pathways. Countries also need better data, particularly for patients’ experiences of care, in order to provide high quality, continuously improving cancer care.

Alcoholic beverages, and the problems they engender, have been familiar fi xtures in human societies since the beginning of recorded history. Worldwide, alcohol is responsible for a larger share of the burden of ill health and premature mortality than tobacco or obesity. It accounts for 1 in 15 deaths in the European region, and for an even larger proportion of disability, especially in men. Its social costs are estimated in excess of 1% of GNP in high- and middle-income countries. Drinking is a social phenomenon, with strong cultural connotations. Alcohol use is driven by social norms more than other health-related behaviours. This is refl ected in unique patterns of social disparity in drinking, showing the well-to-do often more prone to hazardous use of alcohol, and a polarisation of problem-drinking at the two ends of the social spectrum. Governments can play a major role in tackling the harms associated with alcohol use, and have many tools at their disposal to achieve this goal. Some policy approaches are more effective and effi cient than others, depending on their ability to trigger changes in social norms, and on how well they can target the groups that are most at risk. This publication provides a wide-ranging assessment of the health, social and economic impacts of key policy options for tackling alcohol-related harms in three OECD countries (Australia, Canada and Finland), extracting policy-relevant messages for a broader set of countries.

The theme of this fourth edition of Pensions at a Glance is pensions, retirement and life expectancy. Many countries have increased pension ages in the face of population ageing and longer lives. Some have introduced an automatic link between pensions and life expectancy. Improvements to the incentives to work rather than retire are also a common part of recent pension-reform packages. However, ensuring that there are enough jobs for older workers remains a challenge. An in-depth look at these important policy issues is provided by fi ve special chapters on: pension ages, retirement behaviour, pension incentives to retire, the demand for older workers and linking pensions to life expectancy. This edition updates information on the key features of pension provision in OECD countries and provides projections of retirement income for today’s workers. It offers an expanded range of 34 indicators, covering the design of national retirement-income provision, pension entitlements, incomes of older people, the fi nances of pension systems, the demographic and economic context in which pension systems operate and private pensions. More countries are analysed than in previous editions, including four new members of the OECD: Chile, Estonia, Israel and Slovenia. Where possible, data are also provided for the other major economies in the G20: Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, Saudi Arabia and South Africa. Along with data on the European Union’s 27 member states, this brings to 43 the number of economies covered in the report.

TAXATION

The OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and Tax Administrations provide guidance on the application of the “arm’s length principle”, which is the international consensus on transfer pricing, i.e. on the valuation, for tax purposes, of cross-border transactions between associated enterprises. In a global economy where multinational enterprises (MNEs) play a prominent role, transfer pricing is high on the agenda of tax administrators and taxpayers alike. Governments need to ensure that the taxable profi ts of MNEs are not artifi cially shifted out of their jurisdictions and that the tax base reported by MNEs in their respective countries refl ect the economic activity undertaken therein. For taxpayers, it is essential to limit the risks of economic double taxation that may result from a dispute between two countries on the determination of an arm’s length remuneration for their cross-border transactions with associated enterprises. In the 2010 edition, Chapters I-III were substantially revised, with new guidance on: the selection of the most appropriate transfer pricing method to the circumstances of the case; the practical application of transactional profi t methods (transactional net margin method and profi t split method); and on the performance of comparability analyses. Furthermore, a new Chapter IX, on the transfer pricing aspects of business restructurings, was added. Consistency changes were made to the rest of the Guidelines.

This publication contains the offi cial text of the Multilateral Convention on Mutual Assistance in Tax Matters as amended by the 2010 Protocol. The original Convention was developed jointly by the Council of Europe and the OECD and opened for signature by the member states of both organisations on 25th January 1988. The original Convention was amended in 2010 to align it to the international standard on information exchange for tax purposes and to open it to all countries, responding to the call of the G20 to make it easier for all countries to secure the benefi ts of the new co-operative tax environment. The amended Convention entered into force on 1st June 2011. This Convention aims to help governments enforce their tax laws, provides an international legal framework for co-operation among countries in countering international tax avoidance and evasion. It offers a variety of tools for administrative co-operation in tax matters, providing all forms of exchange of information, assistance in tax collection and service of documents. It also facilitates joint audits and information sharing to counter other serious crimes (e.g. money laundering, corruption) when certain conditions are met. It preserves the rights of taxpayers, provides extensive safeguards to protect the confi dentiality of the information exchanged, in particular in relation to personal data.

Taxing Energy Use A Graphical Analysis

The taxation of different sources and uses of energy (particularly those that give rise to emissions of greenhouse gases) will play a key role in governments’ efforts to mitigate the scale of global warming and climate change. At present, effective tax rates vary widely across different sources and uses of energy within countries, as well as across countries. This publication provides the fi rst systematic statistics of such effective tax rates – on a comparable basis – for each OECD country, together with ‘maps’ that illustrate graphically the wide variations in tax rates per unit of energy or per tonne of CO2 emissions. These statistics and maps should be an invaluable tool for policymakers, analysts and researchers considering both domestic fi scal reform in response to climate change and other environmental challenges (e.g. to achieve emissions reductions targets most cost-effectively) and wider international responses.

Illegal trade in environmentally sensitive goods, such as threatened wildlife, timber, hazardous waste, and ozone-depleting substances, has been a long-standing issue in the international trade and environment agenda. The nature of such illegal trade makes it diffi cult to fully understand its extent and impact on the environment. Developing effective policies to reduce illegal trade requires a clear understanding of what drives this trade and the circumstances under which it thrives. In this report, evidence based on customs data and information from licensing schemes is used to document the scale of illegal trade, as well as the economic and environmental impacts of such trade. National and international policies have an important role to play in regulating and reducing illegal trade and the report highlights a range of measures that can be taken at both levels.

This Inventory is concerned with direct budgetary transfers and tax expenditures that relate to fossil fuels, regardless of their impact or of the purpose for which the measures were fi rst put in place. It has been undertaken as an exercise in transparency, and to inform the international dialogue on fossil-fuel subsidy reform. For each of the 34 OECD countries covered, the Inventory provides a succinct summary of its energy economy, and of the budgetary and tax-related measures provided at the central-government level (and, in the case of federal countries, for selected sub-national units of government) relating to fossil-fuel production or consumption. The transfers associated with these measures are reported for recent years using the Producer Support Estimate (PSE) and Consumer Support Estimate (CSE) as organising frameworks. These frameworks have already been used extensively by the OECD, most notably in respect of agriculture. The Inventory covers a wide range of measures that provide a benefi t or preference for a particular activity or a particular product, either in absolute terms or relative to other activities or products, against a specifi ed baseline. Many measures listed in this inventory are relative preferences within a particular country’s tax system rather than absolute support that can be readily compared across countries, and for that reason no national totals are provided.

Walking is the most natural form of mobility; however cities have not always evolved to accommodate the needs of pedestrians and walking has in many cases been neglected in the development of transport systems. Improving the pedestrian environment can contribute signifi cantly to meeting the challenges of climate change, air pollution and health. This report aims to present decision-makers with hard evidence on the important place of walking in transport policies and provide guidelines for developing a safe environment conducive to walking. This is an essential contribution to creating liveable cities. Every single trip begins and ends by walking.


Compact City Policies A Comparative Assessment June 2012, 284 pages ISBN 978-92-64-16784-1 www.oecd.org/bookshop?9789264167841 http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/9789264167865-en €90

This book examines the concept of the compact city and the implication of the current urban context for compact city policies. It explores their potential outcomes, particularly in terms of how it can contribute to Green Growth and looks at developing indicators to monitor compact city and track policy performance. It reviews compact city policies currently being implemented across the OECD in relation to the pursuit of Green Growth objectives and provides ideas to achieve better outcomes. And it assesses the key governance challenges faced by decision-makers as they seek to implement practical compact city strategies. This report is thus intended as “food for thought” for national, sub-national and municipal governments as they seek to address their economic and environmental challenges through the development and implementation of spatial strategies in pursuit of Green Growth objectives. It also illustrates best practices presenting key elements of successful compact city policies.

This report compares urbanisation trends in OECD countries on the basis of a newly defi ned OECD methodology which enables cross-country comparison of the socioeconimic and environmental performance of metropolitan areas in OECD countries. The methodology is presented and results from its application to 27 OECD countries are discussed together with policy implication both on national growth and governance of cities. The report also includes three original papers that present the urbanisation dynamics and prospects in China and South Africa and the governance challenges resulting from the new policy agenda on cities in the United Kingdom.

The OECD Regional Outlook 2011 provides an overview of the main developments in performance among OECD regions and the challenges for regional policy after the crisis. The fi rst two chapters present fresh analysis of regional growth and labour-market trends, exploring their implications for policy. This is followed by three chapters offering focused analyses of key policy issues. The fi rst, and most immediate, concerns the state of sub-national government fi nances in the wake of the crisis and its implications for managing public investment, in particular, during a period of austerity. The next two chapters are concerned with the potential contribution of regions and regional policies to addressing the longer-term challenges of innovation and green growth. Part 3 of the Outlook presents a “policy forum”, a wide-ranging debate on the role of regional policy today involving experts and offi cials from within and outside the OECD. Finally, the Outlook includes individual country pages providing detailed quantitative and qualitative information on regional performance, institutions and policy settings in OECD members.

OECD Regions at a Glance is the one-stop guide for understanding regional competitiveness and performance, providing comparative statistical information at the sub-national level, graphs and maps. It identifi es new ways that regions can increase their capacity to exploit local factors, mobilise resources and link with other regions. Measuring such factors as education levels, employment opportunities and intensity of knowledge-based activities, this publication offers a statistical snapshot of how life is lived – and can be improved – from region to region in the OECD area. This fourth edition of OECD Regions at a Glance showcases the contribution of regions to stronger, fairer and cleaner economies, drawing on both the latest comparable data and past trends across regions in OECD countries. It highlights the persistence of regional disparities, underscores unused resources that can be mobilised to maximise regions’ competitive edge, and shows the common characteristics of performing regions. The report includes data on the four newest OECD member countries: Chile, Estonia, Israel and Slovenia. Where available, data on Brazil, China, India, the Russian Federation and South Africa are also included. This publication provides a dynamic link (StatLink) for each graph and map, which directs the user to a web page where the corresponding data are available in Excel®.

This publication highlights the importance of promoting growth in all types of OECD regions, particularly in underdeveloped ones. Helping such regions to catch up will have a positive impact on a country’s national growth; in some cases more so than in already well-developed regions. Furthermore such growth helps to build a fairer society, in which no territories and their people are left behind. An important question is whether this potential to catch up is possible? The evidence suggests that this is the case. Examinations of patterns of growth reveal that underdeveloped rural and intermediate regions tend to grow faster. Their catching-up potentially largely depends on human capital development, infrastructure and innovation-related activities but also on institutional factors and policies. This publication is based on anlaysis among all OECD regions and 23 regional case studies from ten OECD countries over the period 1995-2007.

OECD Statistical Packages New Statistical Packages replace stand-alone databases

Therefore, access to these ready-made tables is now also included in the subscription to the databases, when available. In some cases, such as the IEA Statistical Databases, table files are not available. Online + Archive versions include delivery of print copies of relevant annuals and periodicals as well as an archival CD-ROM of the data. Online+Archive includes online access to both the database and the annuals/periodicals and their table files in XLS, PDF and HTML.

OECD STATISTICAL PACKAGES

Following the same philosophy as for the annuals, we want to make sure our statistical data subscribers have the best possible options in order to find, access, manipulate, share and make the most out of OECD statistics. Now that databases such as Main Economic Indicators and OECD National Accounts, also have more recent data available in ready-made tables in three formats (XLS, PDF and HTML), we want all data subscribers to benefit from them as well.
