This book takes a global view and is intended as a guide to interpreting
economic indicators worldwide.
Since it would be cumbersome if not impossible to list
figures for all countries, the tables generally show data for the 15 largest
industrial countries. Where appropriate, totals or averages are also
shown for the oecd and the European Union (see definitions below).
The same 15 countries form the basis for the economic and financial
indicators published in The Economist each week. This book therefore
provides the background to these figures and the historical data behind
the up-to-the-minute information.
