The 2019 edition of the OECD Business and Finance Outlook will be released on 12 September 2019.
This year’s edition considers the importance of public trust in business and finance. The Outlook offers a conceptual approach to understanding facets of societal trust in finance, investment and commerce with respect to economic value, fairness and integrity of conduct, and alignment with societal values. The report provides an assessment of factors that have helped to contribute to improvements in trust. These include the deterioration of societal trust following the Global Financial Crisis; recent developments that could eventually contribute to a renewed erosion of trust; and, policy considerations to address trust deficits.
3 September 2018 - The 2018 edition of the OECD Business and Finance Outlook addresses connectivity, both among institutions within the global financial system and among countries.
Almost a decade on from the 2008 financial crisis, the Outlook examines new risks to financial stability that will put financial reforms to the test, focusing in particular on the normalisation of monetary policy, debt problems and off-balance sheet activity in China.
The Outlook also examines how supply-side and demand-side policies can help ensure foreign infrastructure investment is high quality, sustainable and works for all, with particular reference to China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
