Dictionary of Dutchness


Government think-tank Centraal Planbureau calls itself the Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis in English, which sounds much less Soviet. The CPB is an independent research institute which draws up analyses of economic policy for the government and NGOs and publishes economic forecasts. The organisation was launched in 1945. Its first director was Jan Tinbergen who won the Nobel Prize for economics in 1969. website
