Presentation to the Ambassadors to the OECD

William White, as chairman of the Economic and Development Review Committee at the OECD, was invited to speak to the Ambassadors at their annual retreat on the topic of the future work program of the OECD. He gave strong support to the OECD project called NAEC, New Approaches to Economic Challenges. This project was initiated by the Secretary General in recognition of the shortcomings of the analytical appraches relied upon prior to the crisis, which failed to see the crisis coming and also failed to predict both its magnitude and duration.
