From the OECD :
“We set international standards on a wide range of things, from agriculture and tax to the safety of chemicals.”
That’s pretty wide latitude.

“We look, too, at issues that directly affect the lives of ordinary people, like how much they pay in taxes and social security, and how much leisure time they can take.”

I cannot take the OECD Seriously.

The World Governments are too busy trying to save themselves from collapse. They don’t have time to be concerned about the economies. Whoever said Capitalism and Socialism were immune from failure was wrong. Any Government can fail when it over spends.

I agree with the commentors. We will be facing a major change in how countries are governed. We may be seeing a rise of people power as has not been seen before because we have improved communications and we have education. I think power by the elite and by the money people will die because they got greedy. Very few of the money people have the compassion required to maintain the gentle control required to allow a country to prosper. All the world power people are running for their rat holes,
