    Small, Medium, Strong. Trends in SME Performance and Business Conditions

    SMEs and entrepreneurs play a key role in national economies around the world, generating employment and income, contributing to innovation and knowledge diffusion, responding to new or niched demands and social needs, and enhancing social inclusion. However, SMEs are often more affected by business environment conditions and structural policies than larger firms.

    This report presents comparative evidence on SME performance and trends, and on a broad range of policy areas and business environment conditions that are important for small businesses. The analysis takes into account the multi-dimensionality of SME policy objectives and the significant heterogeneity of the SME population, within and across countries. Data and indicators on framework conditions are complemented with information on recent policy trends in OECD countries. This publication addresses a growing demand by governments for tools to monitor the business environment for small and medium-sized enterprises, and benchmark the effectiveness of policies in creating appropriate conditions for them to flourish and grow.

    G7 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors' Meeting: Inequality and Growth

    Growth seems to be slowly picking up. This is good news. But we are still facing a vicious circle of low productivity growth, sluggish demand, stagnant wages and, in many G7 countries, rising or high levels of inequalities.

    Relever les défis fiscaux posés par l'économie numérique, Action 1 - Rapport final 2015

    L’essor de l’économie numérique soulève des défis qui se rapportent à la fiscalité internationale. Ce rapport analyse en détail ces défis. Il observe que l’économie numérique s’impose de plus en plus comme l’économie au sens propre, de sorte qu’il serait difficile, voire impossible, de l’isoler du reste de l’économie à des fins fiscales. Il ajoute toutefois que certains modèles économiques et attributs essentiels de l’économie numérique peuvent exacerber les risques de BEPS, et décrit les effets attendus des mesures issues de l’ensemble des actions qui constituent le projet BEPS. Il présente également les règles et mécanismes d’application qui ont été définis pour faciliter la collecte de la taxe sur la valeur ajoutée (TVA) à partir du pays où se trouve le consommateur lors de transactions transfrontalières entre entreprises et consommateurs, et qui permettront d’établir des règles du jeu équitables entre fournisseurs nationaux et étrangers. Enfin, le rapport étudie et analyse des solutions possibles aux défis fiscaux de plus large portée posés par l’économie numérique, et souligne la nécessité de suivre les évolutions de l’économie numérique au fil du temps.

    G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors meeting: remarks on the global economy and framework for growth

    Latest indicators of rising business confidence and industrial production are welcome. However, we have been here before over the past five years and left “Waiting for Godot” – for the recovery that never comes. There are reasons to be more optimistic this time around. But we have not yet decisively escaped the low-growth trap. Growth in productivity and wages remains lackluster. Inequality and political tensions are high.
