    Does the year you graduate influence your future pay cheque?

    New research points to the role of field-of-study mismatch in explaining the long-term effects of cyclical labour market shocks. It suggests that policy effort ought to be directed not just towards the NEETs, but also towards youth who find employment during recessions, given their higher risk of prolonged field-of-study mismatch and lower wages if mismatch is accompanied by overqualification.

    Les réfugiés ne sont pas un fardeau, mais une chance

    Quand près d’un million de « boat people » vietnamiens ont fui leur pays à la fin des années 1970 et au début des années 1980 pour chercher refuge ailleurs, ils ont généralement été considérés comme un fardeau, et bien souvent refoulés. Beaucoup ont fini par être autorisés à s’installer aux États-Unis. La plupart ne parlaient pas anglais à leur arrivée, avaient des ressources limitées et peu de compétences professionnelles pertinentes.

    Tax incentives are used widely across OECD countries to incentivise individuals to invest in education and training, but are they effective?

This carries an important lesson for other countries in designing their own tax measures for skills investments.
