Call for better PR for globalisation

21 Jun 2007

Globalisation needs better public relations according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Angel Gurria, the secretary general of the OECD, was quoted as saying “the story could be told better” in the Financial Times (FT). This view was endorsed by a leader in the FT itself.

Gurria’s outburst was prompted by the latest annual Employment Outlook (summary in PDF) from the OECD. It made the familiar point that inequality is rising in the rich nations even though real wages are increasing too (see, for example, 19 June post).
