Summary of Society at a Glance 2014
OECD Social Indicators: The Crisis and Its Aftermath
OECD (2014), Society at a Glance 2014: OECD Social Indicators, OECD Publishing.
Governments must take steps to secure the social well-being of the multitudes the recession has harmed.
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.
