Summary/Abstract: In this interview, Ángel Gurría looks back at a decade of financial and economic crisis and draws conclusions for macroeconomic policy. What concerns the European Economic and Monetary Union, he stresses the need to further improve the shock absorption capacity of the single currency. He insists that the OECD remains committed to going beyond GDP, and this is particularly relevant at a time when a new Jobs Strategy is being developed. He also highlights some key chapters in the 22 year long cooperation between the OECD and Hungary.
