OECD reviews of innovation policy by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
158 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Switzerlands innovation performance is among the best in the world, but further raising the level of innovation is of key importance for boosting Switzerlands economic growth and maintaining high living standards in an increasingly globalized world. This comprehensive review suggests some reforms in innovation policy which would help to cope with this challenge.--Publisher's description

Finland by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
111 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Finland is one of the most rural countries within the OECD, and it is also one of the early adopters of a multi-sectoral approach to rural policy. The Finnish model of rural policy has been reasonably successful in achieving coherence among sectoral policies oriented to rural areas (the so-called broad rural policy) and in tailoring specific programs to promote rural development (the so-called narrow rural policy). This review examines developments in Finnish rural policy since the last review in 1995, examining in particular public service delivery and competitiveness and business environment policies.--Publisher's description
Korea by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( )
92 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and French and held by 1,663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the first review in 2000, Korea has made bold efforts to enhance conditions for long term growth: promoting regulatory reform, cutting red tape, strengthening competition policy and market openness. The Korean government has also modernized its regulatory framework for information technologies, an area where Korea plays a leading role among OECD countries. This publication assesses progress since 2000 and analyzes many of the lessons of implementation of regulatory reform. It highlights possible responses to current challenges, including the pressures of an aging society, future welfare needs and human capital development. The study includes a new special chapter on tertiary education, where improvements in the regulatory framework can yield significant benefits for future innovation and productivity.--Publisher's description
Netherlands by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
114 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the Netherlands, the proportion of persons aged 65 and over to the working-age population will rise to 40% by 2050. Without policy changes, this could lead to higher public expenditures, labour force shortages, and slower economic growth. This report surveys of the main barriers to employment for older workers, assesses of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to overcome these barriers and presents a set of policy recommendations for further action by the public authorities and social partners. It examines the balances between income support and work incentives, methods for encouraging employers to hire and retain workers, and policies for ensuring the employability of older workers. This report is published in English with a French translation of the Executive Summary and Recommendations
Norway by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
144 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Improving the performance of youth on the labor market is a crucial challenge in many OECD countries and first experiences on the labor market have a profound influence on later working life. This report surveys the main barriers to employment for young people in Norway, assesses of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to improve the transition from school to work in the country, and presents set of policy recommendations. It finds that on most counts, the youth labor market in Norway performs well, but that the incidence of sickness and disability is unusually high, immigrant youth do not fare as well, and more needs to be done to ensure that all youth leave education with recognized qualifications.--Publisher's description
Georgia by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( )
68 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and Russian and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents the outcomes of a review of legal and institutional frameworks for fighting corruption in Tajikistan, which was carried out in the framework of the Anti-Corruption Network for Transition Economies based at the OECD.

This publication contains the recommendations as well as the full text of the self-assessment report provided by the government of Tajikistan
Spain by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
126 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Spain has recently undertaken a major reform of its rural policies, including the merger of the Ministry of Agriculture with the Ministry of the Environment and the recently approved Law on Sustainable Development of Rural Areas. This new framework creates a multi-sectoral and place-based "rural policy of state", making Spain better equipped to address the challenges and opportunities of rural areas. This report - undertaken at the same time as the reforms were being implemented - will interest both policy makers engaged in similar reform processes and others working on issues such the "political economy" of reforms, rural tourism, renewable energies, rural clusters, development of peri-urban areas and public service delivery in remote rural areas.--Publisher's description
Iceland by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
96 editions published between 1961 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In many OECD countries, tertiary education systems have experienced rapid growth over the last decade. With tertiary education increasingly seen as a fundamental pillar for economic growth, these systems must now address the pressures of a globalising economy and labour market. Within governance frameworks that encourage institutions, individually and collectively, to fulfil multiple missions, tertiary education systems must aim for the broad objectives of growth, full employment and social cohesion. In this context, the OECD launched a major review of tertiary education with the participation of 24 nations. The principal objective of the review is to assist countries in understanding how the organisation, management and delivery of tertiary education can help them achieve their economic and social goals. Iceland is one of 14 countries which opted to host a Country Review, in which a team of external reviewers carried out an in-depth analysis of tertiary education policies. This report includes: an overview of Iceland's tertiary education system; an account of trends and developments in tertiary education in Iceland; an analysis of the strengths and challenges in tertiary education in Iceland; and recommendations for future policy development. This review of tertiary education in Iceland forms part of the OECD Thematic Review of Tertiary Education, a project conducted between 2004 and 2008 (www.oecd.org/edu/tertiary/review)

Innovation and the development agenda by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Innovation drives long-term economic growth. It has an important role to play as global economies recover from the current financial crisis. This book examines the role of innovation in developing countries, with a focus on Africa. It investigates innovation systems and their application; the key role of knowledge in innovation for development; and the importance of comparable country studies and official statistics on innovation. It stresses the need for innovation to become part of a comprehensive development agenda, and makes recommendations for promoting activities in both the formal and informal sectors, with the aim of transforming agriculture into a knowledge-based industry capable of stimulating economic growth--Publisher's description
Italy by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
106 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,058 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This publication presents OECD's comprehensive review of rural policy in Italy. On average, rural regions in Italy have some of the highest GDP per capita among the OECD countries, yet unexploited potential remains. This analysis of rural Italy reveals heterogeneous economic conditions, an increasing elderly population and a diminished focus on environmental concerns. This suggests the need for a broader rural policy approach that reflects the changing demands upon rural resources and that considers other aspects of rurality including health, education and quality of life.--Publisher's description

System of national accounts 1993 by Inter-Secretariat Working Group on National Accounts ( )
9 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 1993 SNA represents a major advance in national accounting. While updating and clarifying the 1968 SNA, the 1993 SNA provides the basis for improving compilation of national accounts statistics, promoting integration of economic and related statistics, and enhancing analysis of economic developments. The 1993 SNA deals more clearly with relationships between economic flows (such as production, income, savings, accumulation, and financing) and links between these flows and stocks. At the same time the 1993 SNA reflects the many significant developments that have taken place in financial markets and completes the integration of balance sheets into the system. The 1993 SNA also suggests how satellite accounts (e.g. environmental accounts) and alternative classifications (e.g., through social accounting matrices) an be used to augment the central framework of the system
Czech Republic by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( )
50 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and French and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This report, part of a series covering around 20 OECD countries, contains a survey of the Czech Republic's main barriers to employment for older workers, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to overcome these barriers, and a set of policy recommendations to further action by public authorities and social partners. These recommendations are designed to alleviate some of the pension and health care pressures governments are facing because of ageing populations
Sweden by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
90 editions published between 1961 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With rapidly aging populations, old-age pension reform and early-retirement schemes alone may not suffice to provide adequate employment opportunities. Additional measures will clearly be needed on wage scales, job discrimination, skills acquisition, and working conditions. Attitudes will also have to change about working later in life. Little is known, however, about what countries have been or should be doing on those issues. This report on Sweden begins a series of around 20 OECD country reports intended to fill the gap. Each contains a survey of the main employment barriers confronting older people, an assessment of existing remedial measures, and policy recommendations for further action
Export and import price index manual theory and practice by International Monetary Fund ( )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A joint production by six international organizations, this manual explores the conceptual and theoretical issues that national statistical offices should consider in the daily compilation of export and import price indices. Intended for use by both developed and developing countries, it replaces guidance from the United Nations that is now more than a quarter-century old and thus badly outdated. The chapters cover many topics; they elaborate on the different practices currently in use, propose alternatives whenever possible, and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each alternative. Given its comprehensive nature, the manual is expected to satisfy the needs of many users in addition to national statistical offices and international organizations, particularly businesses, policymakers, and researchers
