Trade in counterfeit and pirated goods is a vital threat for modern, innovation-driven economies, a worldwide phenomenon that grows in scope and magnitude. Counterfeiters ship infringing products via complex routes, with many intermediary points, which poses a substantial challenge to efficient enforcement. This study looks at the issue of the complex routes of trade in counterfeit pirated goods. Using a set of statistical filters, it identifies key producing economies and key transit points. The analysis is done for ten main sectors for which counterfeiting is the key threat. The results will facilitate tailoring policy responses to strengthen governance frameworks to tackle this risk, depending on the profile of a given economy that is known as a source of counterfeit goods in international trade.
Morelos is one of the smallest states in Mexico, and close to Mexico City. It contains a number of economic and environmental assets in its territory, but has weak productivity levels. This review looks at how Morelos is seeking to boost its economy, particularly through inclusive growth policies such as enhancing human capital and promoting innovation. It also highlights areas of untapped potential for economic growth across rural areas and the tourism and environmental sectors, and offers suggestions for how Morelos could address governance challenges.

Pour asseoir les bases d’une gouvernance publique efficace et transparente, la Tunisie a entrepris, depuis 2004, une réforme tendant au passage vers la gestion budgétaire par objectifs (GBO). Parmi les composantes de cette dernière figure le développement de la programmation triennale et glissante, grâce à la mise en place de cadres budgétaires et de dépenses à moyen terme (CDMT). Cet examen offre un aperçu sur la démarche existante de préparation et d’utilisation du CDMT en mettant en regard l’exemple tunisien avec les grandes tendances observées dans les pays membres de l’OCDE. Il examine les cadres à moyen terme, les instruments de planification, les instruments de programmation, les activités de préparation du budget, et enfin, le calendrier budgétaire. Cet examen donne également un aperçu sur les principaux facteurs d’échec et de succès dans l’instauration des cadres à moyen terme et offre des suggestions pour améliorer ce processus en Tunisie.

The OECD’s New Approaches to Economic Challenges initiative invited experts from inside and outside the Organisation to discuss complexity theory as a means to better understand the interconnected nature of the trends and influences shaping our socio-economic environment. Their contributions, brought together here, examine the assumptions, strengths and shortcomings of traditional models, and propose a way to build new ones that would take into account factors such as psychology, history and culture neglected by these models. The authors concentrate on the discipline of economics as such; the financial system; and applications of complexity theory to policy making and governance. They argue that a new narrative is needed to integrate the hopes, values, attitudes and behaviours of people into economics along with the facts and data economists are more used to dealing with.
