"So we've lots of problems to solve. We've tried everything, but nothing seems to work. There's the economic crisis, and mass unemployment. There's poverty and disease. Terrible wars. And refugees. People scared about the future. Did I mention global warming? That's another biggy. Anyway. I was wondering if you guys had any ideas to help us!? ... That's a 'No' then!?" 


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.
