IARIW-OECD Special Conference on the Future of the SNA System of National Accounts
The objective of the special OECD-IARIW conference is to look at the longer term future of the SNA (System of National Accounts). Papers are invited that contribute to a discussion of the following issues: - Is it inevitable that administrative and analytical uses tend to pull in opposite directions; can this be halted? Is it possible, and is there the will, to find a future development path of national accounts that allows it to develop in ways that will satisfy analytical as well as administrative needs? - How to raise awareness of the possibilities that the accounting framework of national accounts can provide to economic research? How to enlarge the knowledge of the system of national accounts in university curricula of economics and econometrics? - How can the system of national accounts be enhanced in order to stay relevant in providing the data needed to understand the evolving global economy and key economic developments? - What is the place of national accounts in the debate about the measurement of wellbeing, sustainability and other issues raised by the Stiglitz-Sen-Fitousssi report? Should national accounts be confined to the measurement of economic activities or should it be progressively extended to better address these issues? - More generally, what are the main questions related to policy and research that the system of national accounts needs to address in the future?
