"Sir, here's my report on environmental policies and their effect on business."

"Summarise for me please, Frankie."

"There is no evidence that enforcing stringent environmental policies harm global business. In fact the opposite is true. It provides stimulus for innovation, making business more efficient and resilient."

"Do you have proof of this, Frankie?"

"Sure do! Our novel idea of making Global flood-proof with the ark! It has really caught on."

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
