Half a century of country surveys online
The entire collection of OECD‘s country economic surveys has now been made accessible online at the OECD i-Library. Published regularly since the creation of the OECD in 1961, and to mark the Organisation’s 50th anniversary, this online archive offers a unique historical perspective of the economic changes OECD countries have undergone since 1961. It is an invaluable resource for anyone tracing their efforts to rebuild their economies after World War II, addressing the oil crisis in the 1970s, the dot.com revolution and bubble, and the economic, educational and environmental challenges of the 21st century.
The OECD iLibrary country studies archive is a valuable research resource for journalists, academics and the public, and represents the only analytical content on the OECD iLibrary that spans the full 50-year history of the OECD.
The availability online offers a tool for in-depth historical country comparisons across 50 years of political and global change, as well as revealing how OECD recommendations have helped shape modern economies.
Access to the iLibrary country studies archive is at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/16097513
