About Us

OECD's "On the Level" podcasts are dedicated to the quest for a “level playing field” for government, business and society. The strict definition of a level playing field is a market or industry in which all participants compete under the same conditions. But a level playing field also refers to conditions of basic fairness and equality of opportunity within our societies. Both interpretations have their place at On the Level.

Yet, political parties and labor unions, once powerful representatives of people's interests, now face a historical lack of trust. What can be done to break the vicious cycle of narrow interests overriding the public good?
