‌‌3 September 2018 - The 2018 edition of the OECD Business and Finance Outlook addresses connectivity, both among institutions within the global financial system and among countries.

Almost a decade on from the 2008 financial crisis, the Outlook examines new risks to financial stability that will put financial reforms to the test, focusing in particular on the normalisation of monetary policy, debt problems and off-balance sheet activity in China.
