Financial Market Trends - Five decades at the heart of financial modernisation 280 pixelsFive decades at the heart of financial modernisation: The OECD and its Committee on Financial Markets

This special supplement shows how OECD’s work on financial markets, with the Committee on Financial Markets at its core, has evolved over the past five decades. More than just a chronology, it attempts to explain and analyse the factors and dynamics that transformed financial markets and the work conducted in that area – thereby putting into perspective the challenges that lie ahead.
