Investment in the OECD: pre- and post-crisis developments
We make an international comparison between OECD countries distinguishing investment along several dimensions and to account for these developments, e.g. pre- and post-crisis developments, developments by means of a decomposition by private and public investments and housing. In addition we investigate developments in investments in R&D and human capital. Taking these historical developments as a starting point, this communication report looks ahead to future investment developments. Can investments recover and return to pre-crisis levels? Which economic factors and risks might affect the speed of adjustment?
