What does CPB mean?

CPB stands for Central Planning Bureau, an advisory body for the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. CPB has access to confidential policy information and can therefore assess the policy measures envisaged in the Cabinet. The Central Planning Bureau was established with the later Nobel Prize winner Jan Tinbergen as first director. Although the name of the agency suggests this, CPB does not (economic) planning. That would not fit into the market economy that is the Netherlands.
