A slowdown in global economic growth and a continuing rise in income inequality are projected for the coming decades, according to an OECD study to be released Wednesday 2 July 2014.
The report looks at what the world could look like by 2060 and includes long-term economic projections. It provides warnings but also a number of policy recommendations for achieving growth, equity, and environmental sustainability.
Policy challenges for the next 50 years will be launched at a lunchtime media briefing and debate (in French) by Jean-Luc Schneider, Deputy Director of the OECD’s Economics Department, at 12.45 on Wednesday 2 July 2014, at the OECD, 2 rue André Pascal, Paris 75016.
To register for the briefing, which is organised in conjunction with the French Association of Economic and Financial Journalists (AJEF), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. A light lunch will be provided.
The study will be available online from 13.00 (Paris time) Wednesday 2 July at www.oecd.org/eco. For further information, journalists are invited to contact the OECD’s Media Division (email@example.com ; tel. +33 1 4524 9700).
