Understanding the New Economy

Much has already come out of NAEC in terms of specific ideas, policies, metrics, and approaches. But real change requires that people see the bigger picture as well. Explanations for how the world works, visions for where they want to go, and shared narratives to help them work together to get there. That is why a new narrative of growth is so important to discuss at OECD and so central to its collective mission.  Such a narrative must be based on the best facts and science available, but it must also provide understanding and inspiration.

Systems Thinking, Anticipation and Resilience

There is a clear need for new ideas and approaches to provide a sound basis for better-informed decisions to manage intensifying economic, environmental and social challenges. As these challenges are systemic, interconnected and dynamic, systems thinking, coupled with improved anticipation and strengthened resilience, provides a coherent methodology and the necessary tools to develop the new approaches which are so urgently required to formulate and implement more coherent and effective policies. The Strategic Partnership established by the OECD and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) has defined priorities including the formulation of systems-based strategies to address global issues, disseminating systems thinking through education and training, and extending the systems approach across the OECD.

NAEC Innovation LAB

OECD has established a NAEC Innovation LAB, co-ordinated by the NAEC Unit and the Office of the Chief Economist, to promote experimentation within the OECD on agent-based modelling (ABM), machine learning, big data applications, and network analysis. The LAB provides a space for cross-Directorate collaboration and exchange to encourage the adoption of new and innovative data and analytical methods across the Organisation, to address new policy questions and bring new policy insights.
