Great article by @OECDObserver on Dublin’s Silicon Docks and the thriving tech scene in Ireland - well worth a read   

Phillip Jones @chesterwriter

Just a coincidence that of the #OECD’s 34 #member states, 20 of them are also members of the #EU? Hardly #impartial observer then? #tainted

Sofia Falk @sofiafalk

When the general secretary of @OECD left the room, most of the male audience did as well...#IWD2016 #OECD

Judith bogner @judithbogner

I resonate with @OECD’s #BetterLifeIndex. It makes so much more sense than #GDP as measure of a country’s wellbeing

John Devlin @jvdevlin

Great to be there tonight to see the @OECD go green for #StPatricksDay

James Murray @James_BG

Fascinating @OECD report dismisses argument environmental policies harm an economy overall   


Good to hear that tougher #environmental laws do not hurt export competitiveness - @OECD study    

Malene Rydahl @MaleneRydahl

The full transcript of my conference @OECD on #happiness inspired by the Danes ! Thank you @OECDObserver #bigday

@OECDObserver “underpaying or overpaying interns loses sight” of purpose of an internship. What about when they’re not paid at all like @UN?
