NBC’s Louisa Bojesen talks with Angel Gurría, the Secretary-General of the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), about the state of the world economy.
Since Gurría was appointed as the Secretary-General in June 2006, he has worked hard to promote the growth of the global economy, and recruiting new members to the organization such as emerging economies Brazil and China.
In this exclusive interview, Gurria discusses his thoughts on the world economy, in particular China and its desire to stimulate growth. He also weighs in on the hotly debated topic of when will the U.S. Federal Reserve raise rates. Other topics include discussing taxes, why the world should put a stop to coal use and the current state of the oil price.
