This OECD report delivers valuable empirical data on the social situation in the wake of the recession in more than 40 countries. The data present a troubling view of global well-being. Despite people’s need for benefits and services, many countries – burdened by the recession and decades-long deficits – cannot afford to help their people. This information about fallout from the recession may prove revelatory as future generations deal with deep-seated social and economic problems. getAbstract recommends the OECD’s research to government leaders, NGOs and social services planners.
In this summary, you will learn
- What “social indicators” reveal about the state of international society and
- How to create “crisis-proof” social protection systems.
