OECD has launched the latest edition of the OECD Employment Outlook.
According to the publication’s press release, “[t]he 2019 edition … presents new evidence on changes in job stability, underemployment and the share of well-paid jobs, and discusses the policy implications of these changes with respect to how technology, globalisation, population ageing, and other megatrends are transforming the labour market in OECD countries.”
“As a global community, we also value fairness and competitiveness in international markets. The rules that govern international trade were created precisely to level the global playing field and ensure fair competition that drives innovation and benefits consumers. But some governments still support (or subsidise) certain firms or domestic industries to give them a leg up on the competition. This can happen for a number of reasons, but is ultimately to the detriment of consumers, businesses, and jobs. We often don’t know who the “real” winners would be if the competition were truly fair.”
Check out one of the latest OECD opinion pieces, this one on why government subsidies are bad for global competition.

Among the latest trade-related publications from the OECD, available through the WTO’s subscription to the OECD iLibrary, read more about the intricacies of parcels and the work done by customs officials worldwide to ensure that legal goods cross borders expeditiously, while illicit or illegal goods do not.
