G20: Remarks for Session 3 - Investment and Infrastructure

One traditional cylinder of the global growth engine has been specifically weak: this is investment, the second of the 3 “I”s of the Turkish Presidency’s triptych, and in particular cross-border investment.

G20: Remarks for Session 2 - Framework for Strong, Sustainable and Balanced Growth

We therefore need a “copernician” change in our approach to the growth – inequality nexus: let’s not think growth first, and inequality thereafter but let’s consider both of them, together, in their circularity. In other words, let’s think “Inclusive Growth”, right from the start, and let’s make it another touchstone of our efforts and complement the Pittsburgh tryptic of strong, sustainable and balanced growth!

OECD’s 2015 Going for Growth: Breaking the vicious circle

Going for Growth is the OECD’s flagship report on structural policies. The purpose of Going for Growth is to help governments setting a reform agenda to improve citizens’ well-being.

Roundtable on Long-term Investment: Closing Address

Too often today, whether in the political or corporate worlds, the focus is squarely on the short-term: on the next election or the next quarter. Likewise, investors are incentivised to focus on shorter-term financial returns. As a result, we are failing to reap the social, economic and environmental returns of long-term productive investment.

Strengthening Global Growth: The G20 Brisbane Summit’s Challenges and Contributions

The G20 needs to go structural, social, and green! With fiscal and monetary policy room nearly exhausted, structural reforms are the best choices, sometimes the only choice. The OECD battle cry in this regard has been unchanged since 2008: “go structural!”.

APEC Finance Ministers Meeting: Session 2, Cooperation on Infrastructure Investment and Financing

The downturn in fixed investment among advanced economies from the onset of the global crisis was unusually severe, widespread and long-lasting relative to comparable episodes in the past and investment gaps are set to remain large relative to projected future long-term trends.

G-20 Finance Ministers and Central Banks Governors’ Meeting - Session 3: The Investment Package

Policy has generated plenty of financial risk taking on the part of institutional and other investors, but the greatest paradox today is the decoupling between this, on the one hand, and ‘the great hesitation’ of companies to invest in real projects, and most notably in the area of infrastructure, on the other.
