Across the OECD, governments are seeking to undertake structural reforms to foster their economic growth. This new publication, Economic Policy Reforms: Going for Growth, takes stock of the progress made in implementing policy reforms and suggests priorities for the future reform agenda in each member country. It examines how member states with weak labour utilisation, as in some European countries, could increase labour force participation and thus raise living standards. The publication also discusses how countries with comparatively low labour productivity, such as Japan, could reduce their income gap relative to the leading countries. It also suggests policy priorities for strongly-performing countries.

This publication provides a rich set of recent comparative indicators covering structural policy areas such as labour markets, education and product market regulation. These indicators enable countries to see their economic performance and structural policies in comparison with others. The publication puts together the knowledge accumulated at the OECD in these various fields.

In addition to the stocktaking exercise, this issue contains four analytical chapters covering:

  • Trends in product market regulation in OECD countries, including recent indicators
  • The effects of pension schemes on the labour-force participation of older workers
  • The trends and determinants of the labour-force participation of women
  • The long-term budgetary implications of tax-favoured retirement saving plans
