"Helen!! Get Frankie in here... This paper on fixing unemployment will upset a lot of people. Redraft it!!" 

"But aren't tough reforms needed to boost jobs?"

"Yes, but don't forget, the unemployed need help. They need training. Now go!" 

"Tough meeting with the boss?"

"Put it this way... I might have to do that IT training course if I'm not careful!"

The world can be a complex place. See how Frankie and his colleagues at Global.org grapple with the thorny public policy issues of our time, in this new cartoon strip.

"Frankie.org" is by Stik, especially for the OECD Observer. Frankie welcomes your comments and advice.
