The OECD’s 2012 Economic Survey of the United States is an in-depth analysis of the U.S. economy and offers policy recommendations to promote sustainable economic growth and employment. The Survey also explores policy options to reduce income inequality and poverty. A special chapter in this year’s report is focused on fostering innovation.

We invite you to join us at the Woodrow Wilson Center for a presentation and discussion on the findings of the report with OECD Deputy Secretary-General Ambassador Richard Boucher, US Ambassador to the OECD Karen Kornbluh, and members of the OECD Economic Survey team.

The 34-nation Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) regularly assesses economic policies of its member countries and key emerging economies. OECD Economic Surveys are prepared as part of a peer review process and its recommendations are endorsed by all OECD member counties. They  provide timely analysis, guidance and options for policymakers to shape “better policies for better lives” and have proven to be essential reading in assessing global economic challenges and opportunities.
