Dictionary of Dutchness


The annual Macro Economische Verkenning (MEV) or macro- economic outlook is published by the government’s economic policy advisor CPB on the third Tuesday of September (budget day) every year. It contains all the forecasts which ministers have used to work out their spending plans and calculates what the effect of those policies is likely to be. Most years, at least some of the figures are leaked to the press in advance.
