The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development
This report provides an overview of Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) role in developing key policy recommendations that often serve as the basis for international standards and practices. Following the financial crisis, the OECD played a major role in providing cross-country analyses of market reforms and programs to stimulate growth. The US has sparred periodically with other OECD member countries over various issues, including US anti-dumping laws and the size of the US financial contribution. Key issues for Congress include OECD work on coordinating national approaches to curtailing bribery and the illicit use of tax havens.
