    Europe and the United States: Jump-starting the engine of global growth

    The OECD was born transatlantic since its very origins as the Organisation for European Economic Cooperation in 1948, established in the immediate post-war period to manage and distribute Marshall Plan aid to reconstruct Europe.

    OECD Secretary-General Gurría addresses dangers of U.S. impasse to world economy
