OECD Better Life Index

For more than fifty years, the OECD has been promoting 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 wellbeing, the OECD incorporates the quality of citizens’ lives into a common understanding of progress. Users can create their own Better Life Index, 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 2013, the portal was enhanced with updated data. Visit the portal at www.oecd.org/betterlifeindex

BETTER LIFE INDEX

Rights available in all languages except English and French. Previous edition published in Chinese, English, French, Japanese and Korean The second edition of How’s Life? provides an update on the most important aspects that shape people’s lives and well-being: income, jobs, housing, health, work-life balance, education, social connections, civic engagement and governance, environment, personal security and subjective well-being. It paints a comprehensive picture of well-being in OECD countries and other major economies, by looking at people’s material living conditions and quality of life across the population. In addition, the report contains in-depth studies of four key cross-cutting issues in well-being that are particularly relevant. First, how well-being has changed during the global economic and financial crisis. Second, gender differences, showing that the traditional gender gap in favour of men has reduced but has not disappeared. It also finds that women and men do well in different areas of well-being and that they are increasingly sharing tasks and roles. Third, it looks at the quality of employment and well-being in the workplace. The report presents evidence on the main factors that drive people’s commitment at work and are key to strengthening their capacity to cope with demanding jobs. Finally, the last chapter of the report studies the links between current and future well-being. It looks at ways to define and measure sustainability of well-being over time.

Rights available in all languages except English, French and Spanish 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 financial crisis that quickly began to make itself felt in the real economy, destroying businesses and raising unemployment to its highest levels in decades. The worst of the crisis now looks to be over, but 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 and saving are likely to become the main priority, meaning the impact of the recession will continue to be felt for years to come.

Themes: General Economics, Development, Trade, Emerging Economies Rights available in all languages except English, French and Spanish Few subjects are as controversial – and as poorly understood – as globalisation. While in its broadest sense, economic globalisation is as old as trade itself, the recent financial crisis has amplified the complexity associated with the global interconnectedness of the world’s economies and the ramifications for 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 in four crucial areas, namely employment, development, the environment and financial 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?

Themes: Environment, Sustainable Development, Agriculture and Food Rights available in all languages except English, French and Spanish 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 are already water scarce. This book looks at how issues ranging from infrastructure financing to climate change influence water resources, as well as the importance of water in activities ranging from energy production to agriculture.

Themes: Development, Emerging Economies Rights available in all languages except English, French, Chinese, Spanish Latin American economies continue to present relatively stable growth, but continued uncertainty with regards to the duration of the commodity boom could pose threats to medium-term growth and economic development. Latin American countries face increasing competition from emerging economies across the globe, particularly in manufacturing sectors. In this context of shifting wealth, it is increasingly important to foster competitiveness and connectivity. Improving logistics performance is particularly important as it directly impacts growth, productivity and trade within the region and beyond. The region’s productive structure, with significant concentration in natural resource and agriculture, augment the importance of logistics in fostering competitiveness. Nevertheless, logistics performance in the region faces serious gaps, particularly in the areas of customs performance and the availability of infrastructure. Improving these aspects will entail more and better investment in infrastructure, as well as making the most of existing infrastructure by putting in place efficient trade facilitation measures and efficient and appropriate regulatory frameworks.

This first OECD Skills Outlook presents the initial results of the “OECD Survey of Adult Skills”, which evaluates the skills of adults in 33 OECD and non-OECD partner countries. It was designed to provide insights into the availability of some of the key skills and how they are used at work and at home. A major component was the direct assessment of key information processing skills: literacy, numeracy and problemsolving in the context of technology-rich environments. The book examines the social and economic context, the supply of key information processing skills, who has these skills at what level, supply and demand for these skills in the labour market, acquisition and maintenance of skills, and how having these skills translates into better economic and social outcomes.

Themes: Education and Skills Rights available in all languages except English, French, Spanish Artists, alongside scientists and entrepreneurs, are role models for innovation in our societies. Not surprisingly, arts education is commonly said to be a means of developing skills considered as critical for innovation: critical and creative thinking, motivation, self- confidence, and ability to communicate and cooperate effectively, as well as other skills in non-arts academic subjects such as mathematics, science, reading and writing. But does arts education really have a positive impact on the three subsets of skills that we define as “skills for innovation”: technical skills, skills in thinking and creativity, and character (behavioural and social skills)? This book examines the state of empirical knowledge about the impact of arts education on these kinds of outcomes. The types of arts education examined include arts classes in school (classes in music, visual arts, theatre and dance), artsintegrated 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 and out-ofschool 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. • • • • • • • • • • •

Themes: Education and Skills Rights available in all languages except English and French The OECD’s Innovative Learning Environments (ILE) is an ambitious international study that is based on 40 in-depth case studies of powerful 21st century learning Environments that have taken the innovation journey. This report presents a wealth of international material and features a new framework for understanding these learning environments, organised into eight chapters. Richly illustrated by the many local examples, it argues that a contemporary learning environment should: • Innovate the elements and dynamics of its “pedagogical core”.- • Become a “formative organisation” through strong design strategies with corresponding learning leadership, evaluation and feedback. • Open up to partnerships to grow social and professional capital, and to sustain renewal and dynamism. • Promote 21st century effectiveness through the application of the ILE learning principles. In conclusion it offers pointers to how this can be achieved, including the role of technology, networking and changing organisational cultures. Table of contents: Learning environments and innovative practice The learners in the case study learning environments Innovating the elements of the pedagogical core Innovating dynamics within learning environments Designing formative learning organisations Extending learning environments through partnerships The Nature of Learning principles revisited Creating and sustaining innovative learning The case study sites The Innovative Learning Environments “Universe” and the case study protocols in brief

Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Lives A Strategic Approach to Skills Policies October 2012, 120 pages ISBN 9789264177291 http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/9789264177338-en ¨ 39.00 $54.00 £35.00 • 5 000 Themes: Education and Skills, Employment, Science and Information Technology Rights available in all languages except English, French, German, Korean and Spanish 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 qualifications attained, to a much broader perspective that includes the skills people can acquire, use and maintain–and also lose–over a whole lifetime. Without sufficient 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. Table of contents: Policy Lever 1: Developing Relevant Skills: Key policy lessons/How can countries improve the quality and quantity of relevant skills?/ Countries can encourage and enable people to learn throughout their lives/Design efficient and effective education and training systems/Remove barriers to investing in further learning/Raise the quality of education/… Policy Lever 2: Activating Skills supply: Key policy lessons/ How can countries encourage people to supply their skills to the labour market/Discourage early retirement/… Policy Lever 3: Putting Skills to Effective Use: Key policy lessons /How can countries make the best use of their talent pool/Countries can help individuals to make the best use of their skills/Support employers in making better use of their employees’ skills/Enhance the use of skills through better management and innovation/Tackle unemployment and help young people to gain a foothold in the labour market… The Way Forward

Themes: Social Issues/Migration/Health, Education and Skills, Employment, Governance Rights available in all languages except English, French, German, Korean, Spanish 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 report focuses on how best to close these gender gaps under four broad headings: 1) Gender equality, social norms and public policies; and gender equality in 2) education; 3) employment and 4) entrepreneurship. Key policy messages are as follows: -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 fields; -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 firms, not just start-ups and small enterprises. Equal access to finance for male and female entrepreneurs needs to be assured.

There are still over 48 million people out of work in the OECD area. Balancing providing income support for these unemployed, while still maintaining strong incentives and support to help them move back into work, is not easy. This year’s Outlook offers useful lessons from a recent OECD review of benefit systems, public and private employment services, and employment and training programmes in seven member countries. In addition, the Outlook outlines how youth and older workers are faring in today’s challenging labour markets, and also presents an update of employment protection in OECD countries and selected emerging economies. The report concludes with the key findings of a new international study of involuntary job loss as a result of firms downsizing, moving or going out of business. As usual, the Outlook includes an extensive statistical annex on key labour market indicators. Table of contents: Editorial Chapter 1. All in it together?

Themes: Employment, Social Issues/Migration/Health Rights available in all languages except English and French The costs of mental ill-health for the individuals concerned, employers and society at large are enormous. Mental illness is responsible for a very significant loss of potential labour supply, high rates of unemployment, and a high incidence of sickness absence and reduced productivity at work. In particular, mental illness causes too many young people to leave the labour market, or never really enter it, through early moves onto disability benefit. Today, between one-third and one-half of all new disability benefit claims are for reasons of mental ill-health, and among young adults that proportion goes up to over 70%. Indeed, mental ill-health is becoming a key issue for the well-functioning of the OECD’s labour markets and social policies. It requires a stronger focus on policies addressing mental health and work issues. Despite the very high costs to the individuals and the economy, there is little awareness about the connection between mental health and work. Understanding the drivers behind the labour market outcomes and the level of inactivity of people with mental ill-health is critical for the development of more effective policies. This report aims to identify the knowledge gaps and reviews the evidence on the main challenges and barriers to better integrating people with mental illness in the world of work.

Rights available in all languages except English and French Developing growth strategies that promote greener lifestyles requires a good understanding of the factors that affect people’s behaviour towards the environment. Recent OECD work, based on periodic surveys of more than 10 000 households across a number of countries and areas, represents a breakthrough by providing a common framework to collect unique empirical evidence for better policy design. This publication presents a data overview of the most recent round of the survey implemented in 5 areas (energy, food, transport, waste and water) and 11 countries: Australia, Canada, Chile, France, Israel, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. The new survey confirms the importance of providing the right economic incentives for influencing our decisions. The findings indicate that “soft” measures such as labeling and public information campaigns also have a significant complementary role to play. Spurring desirable behaviour change will require a mix of these instruments. Table of contents: Chapter 1. The environmental policy context Chapter 2.

It examines the range and complexity of possible changes in the water cycle and the challenges of making practical, on-site adaptation decisions for water. It offers policy makers a risk- based framework and guidance to “know”, “cap” and “manage” water risks in order to provide flexibility and improve decisions despite the lack of reliable predictions. Drawing insights from a stock take of current policy efforts to adapt water systems across all 34 member countries and the European Union, the report examines the use of economic instruments to promote adaptation (e.g. insurance schemes, water markets and banks, water pricing), incentives for “green” infrastructure and ecosystem-based approaches, and financing issues.

Theme: Governance

Rights available in all languages except English and French The world is becoming increasingly global. This raises important challenges for regulatory processes, which still largely emanate from domestic jurisdictions. In order to eliminate unnecessary regulatory divergences and to address global challenges pertaining to systemic risks, the environment, and human health and safety, governments increasingly seek to better articulate regulations across borders and to ensure greater enforcement of rules and their application across jurisdictions. This report gathers in a synthetic manner the knowledge and evidence available to date on the various mechanisms available to governments to promote regulatory co-operation, and their benefits and challenges. The review of evidence confirms the increased internationalisation of regulation, which takes place through a wide variety of mechanisms and multiple actors, and highlights a shift in the nature of IRC from complete ‘harmonisation’ of regulation to more flexible options, such as mutual, recognition agreements. Despite growing regulatory co-operation, however, decision making on IRC is not informed by a clear understanding of benefits costs and success factors of the diverse IRC options.

Meeting the growing demand for energy, and electricity in particular, while addressing the need to curb greenhouse gas emissions and ensure security of energy supply, is one of the most difficult 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 diversification 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 financing 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. Table of contents: Chapter 1. Overview of Nuclear Energy Today Chapter 2. Basic Principles of Nuclear Energy Chapter 3. The Nuclear Fuel Cycle Chapter 4. Nuclear Safety Chapter 5. Radiation and Radiological Protection Chapter 6. Management of Radioactive Waste Chapter 7. Nuclear Law and Non-proliferation Chapter 8. The Economics and Financing of Nuclear Energy Chapter 9.

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 or assembly into final products. The functional and spatial fragmentation that has occurred within GVCs has significantly 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.

This publication brings together the results of a two-year programme of work at the OECD on New Sources of Growth and the role of knowledge-based capital. This work shows that business investment in KBC is a key to future productivity growth and living standards.In many countries, business investment in KBC has increased faster than - and in some countries significantly exceeds – investment in physical capital (like machinery). To promote long-term growth and the jobs of tomorrow, governments must ensure that framework conditions, institutions and policies facilitate business investment in KBC. Emerging economies are also making concerted efforts to help their businesses accumulate KBC. Table of contents: Introduction and overview Chapter 1.

Themes: Science and Information Technology, Industry and Services, Industry, Services and Trade Rights available in all languages except English and French This book explores emerging topics in innovation policy for more inclusive and sustainable growth, building on concrete examples. It 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 efficiency 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 propoor or base-of-the-pyramid (BoP) innovation.

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. This raises many important socio- economic and political issues for stakeholders to consider, as economies and societies become increasingly inter-meshed. 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.

Themes: Science and Information Technology, Social Issues/Migration/Health Rights available in all languages except English and French The future sustainability of health systems will depend on how well governments are able to anticipate and respond to efficiency and quality of care challenges. Bold action is required, as well as willingness to test innovative care delivery approaches. The greatest promise for transformational change is in applications that encourage new, ubiquitous, participatory preventive and personalised smart models of care. A whole new world of possibilities in using mobiles and the Internet to address healthcare challenges has opened up. The potential of mobile devices, services and applications to support selfmanagement, behavioural modification and “participatory healthcare” is greater than ever before. However, a key hurdle is the big data challenge, dealing with the exponentially accelerating accumulation of patient data – all of which must be mined, stored securely and accurately, and converted to meaningful information at the point of care. In order to fully exploit the new smart approaches to care, acceptance, privacy and usability issues will also have to be carefully considered.

Themes: Social Issues/Migration/Health Rights available in all languages except English and French More than five 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 fight against cancer. This report 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. Table of contents: Chapter 1.

TAXATION

Base erosion constitutes a serious risk to tax revenues, tax sovereignty and tax fairness for many countries. While there are many ways in which domestic tax bases can be eroded, a significant source of base erosion is profit shifting. This report presents the studies and data available regarding the existence and magnitude of base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS). It also contains an overview of global developments that have an impact on corporate tax matters and identifies the key principles that underlie the taxation of cross-border activities, as well as the BEPS opportunities these principles may create. The report concludes that current rules provide opportunities to associate more profits with legal constructs and intangible rights and obligations, and to legally shift risk intra-group, with the result of reducing the share of profits associated with substantive operations. The report recommends the development of an action plan to address BEPS issues in a comprehensive manner. Table of contents: Chapter 1. Introduction Chapter 2. How big a problem is BEPS?

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 profits of MNEs are not artificially shifted out of their jurisdictions and that the tax base reported by MNEs in their respective countries reflect 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 profit methods (transactional net margin method and profit split method); and on the performance of comparability analyses. Furthermore, a new Chapter IX, on the transfer pricing aspects of business

This joint OECD-WTO publication puts a spotlight on aid for trade to assess what is happening, what is not, and where improvements are needed. The analysis is focused on trends in aid-for-trade policies, programmes and practices. It shows that the Aid- for-Trade Initiative is delivering tangible results in improving trade performance and bettering people’s lives, notably those of women, in developing countries. The report highlights that aid for trade plays an important role in enabling firms in developing countries to connect with or move up value chains. In fact, the emergence of value chains strengthens the rationale for aid for trade. Stakeholders remain actively engaged in the Aid-for-Trade Initiative. The 2013 monitoring exercise was based on self-assessments from 80 developing countries, 28 bilateral donors, 15 multilateral donors and 9 providers of South-South cooperation. Views were also received from 524 supplier firms in developing countries and 173 lead firms, mostly in OECD countries. Table of contents: Chapter 1. Is aid for trade adapting to new realities? Chapter 2. Aid-for-trade flows and financing Chapter 3. Value chains and the development path Chapter 4. Boosting value chains via regional aid for trade Chapter 5. Evaluating the effectiveness of aid for trade Chapter 6. The way forward Aid for Trade at a Glance: Fact Sheets Annex A. Keydata Annex B. DAC list of ODA recipients by income group Annex C. DAC list of ODA recipients by region Annex D. Aid-for-trade related CRS purpose codes by category Annex E. Regression estimates Annex F. Methodology for econometric analysis

Theme: Transport Rights available in all languages except English and French The 2013 Transport Outlook presents and discusses global scenarios concerning the development of transport volumes through 2050. The analysis highlights the impact of alternative economic growth scenarios on passenger and freight flows and the consequences of rapid urbanisation outside the OECD. Under any scenario, transport volumes grow very strongly in non-OECD regions, and curbing negative side-effects (including greenhouse gas emissions, local pollution and congestion) is a major challenge. The Outlook also discusses the challenge of establishing sustainable funding mechanisms for the transport sector, emphasising the need for long run funding strategies in a context of growing global investment demand. The Outlook includes a statistical annex.

Themes: Urban, Rural and Regional Development, Environment and Sustainable Development, Finance and Investment/Insurance and Pensions, Governance Rights available in all languages except English and French This report synthesises the findings from six case studies of urban green growth policies, four at the city level (Paris, Chicago, Stockholm, Kitakyushu) and two at the national level (China, Korea). It offers a definition of urban green growth and a framework for analysing how it might play out in different types of cities. It demonstrates the importance of urban policies for achieving national environmental policy goals and discusses the increased efficiency of policy intervention at the urban level. It identifies urban activities to reduce environmental impact, that are most likely to contribute to the policy priorities of job creation, urban attractiveness, metro-regional supply of green products and services, and increased urban land values. It also provides guidance on addressing potential financing and governance challenges that may arise in pursuing urban green growth. Finally, the report offers a preliminary proposal for how green growth in cities could be measured. Table of contents: Chapter 1. What is green growth in cities? Chapter 2. Why are cities important to national green growth strategies? Chapter 3. What are the high-priority green growth policies for cities? Chapter 4. How should urban green growth governance and financing challenges be addressed? Annex A Measuring green growth in cities Related OECD work on green growth and cities
