OECD ECONOMIC OUTLOOK Better, but not good enough

OECD ECONOMIC OUTLOOK Better, but not good enough Catherine L. Mann OECD Chief Economist 7 June 2017 Paris www.oecd.org/economy/economicoutlook.htm ECOSCOPE blog: oecdecoscope.wordpress.com Key messages Global growth expected to pick-up modestly with upside risks Confidence is increasing and investment and trade are picking up from low levels Growth is broad based; recovery in commodity producers helps the modest global upturn Signs of rising demand for high-tech goods and investment to upgrade capital Productivity and wage growth remain subdued; financial stability risks persist Headline employment indicators are improving but labour markets have not recovered Financial risks from high and rising credit growth, house price increases, interest rate gaps

More needs to be done to share the gains from structural trends and trade Changes to technology, consumer preferences and trade are occurring simultaneously Job losses from shifts in activity are concentrated in manufacturing and specific regions An integrated policy approach is needed to make globalisation work for all A more level playing field for the international system Domestic reforms to boost competition, job creation, skills and innovation Targeted policies to help people who are left behind seize new opportunities 2 Global GDP growth should pick up modestly but remains below historical norms Global GDP growth 3 Source: OECD June 2017 Economic Outlook database.

Manufacturing job losses and role for Technology & Consumer Preferences vs Trade Factors explaining the decline in manufacturing jobs Average annual percentage point change in the share of total employment, 1990-2008 Note: Decomposition based on regression estimation. Each factor is based on the change over the period. Technology and consumer preferences include ICT and machinery investment, changes in the manufacturing consumption share and time specific effects. Source: OECD Economic Outlook database; STAN database; and OECD calculations. 16 Decline in manufacturing matters because activity is regionally concentrated Geographic concentration index by sector Average for 2000-2015 More concentrated

Note: Distributive trades includes distributive trade, repairs, transportation and storage, accommodation and food service activities. Index measures the extent to which employment is concentrated in particular regions, varying between 0 (no concentration, where all regions of a country have the same manufacturing employment rate) and 100 (maximum concentration, where all manufacturing employment is concentrated in the smallest region). The index incorporates the size of the region and is based on OECD (2003) Geographic Concentration and Territorial Disparity in OECD Countries.
