Abstract:Following the strong decline in 2009, macroeconomic conditions improved in most OECD countries in 2010/11. However, the recovery generally remained fragile, in particular in Southern Europe, where the debt crisis dampened economic prospects. With the earthquake and tsunami in 2011, Japan also re-entered into recession. Unemployment hit a high of 8.3% in 2010 and declined only marginally in 2011, to 8.1%. It thus remained well above the pre-crisis level of 5.7% in 2007.
