The 30 countries of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) represent the heart of the developed world. The OECD's database of economic, environmental and social statistics is respected as a guide to global development. This publication draws out trends from the statistics and looks at future prospects through a series of authoritative commentaries from leading members of the OECD, relevant NGOs and some of the world's leading professional service firms, banks and international corporations. Planned as an annual overview, the yearbook should be a useful reference source for boardrooms, government strategists, and decision-makers world-wide.
