Labour market institutions and wage inequality by Winfried Koeniger( file )
4 editions published in 2004 in German and English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
"In this paper we investigate the importance of labor market institutions such as unemployment insurance, unions, firing regulation and minimum wages for the evolution of wage inequality across countries. We derive a simple log-linear equation of the wage differential as a function of the institutional parameters, total factor productivity, final good prices and relative skill supply. Our estimates for 11 OECD countries imply that labor market institutions can account for a large part of the change of wage inequality across countries after controlling for time and country effects"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site

Judicial Performance and its Determinants A Cross-Country Perspective ( Article )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Well functioning judiciaries are key to economic development. Combining existing information with a newly collected dataset, the paper provides cross-country comparisons of measures of judicial performance, and investigates how cross-country differences in trial length are related to the underlying characteristics of judicial systems. There is a large cross-country variation in trial length across all instances, which appears to be related to the share of the justice budget devoted to computerisation, the systematic production of statistics the active management of the progress of cases, the presence of specialised commercial courts and the managerial responsibilities assigned to the chief judge. Good quality regulation, is associated with lower litigation, which in turn can shorten trial length. Free negotiation of lawyers' fees also appears to be associated with lower litigation
The Economics of Civil Justice New Cross-country Data and Empirics ( Article )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Combining existing information with a newly collected dataset, the paper develops indicators of the performance and the institutional characteristics of OECD judicial systems. It provides cross-country comparisons of measures of trial length, accessibility to justice services and predictability of decisions. It then investigates how trial length is related to some of the underlying characteristics of the systems. There is a large cross-country variation in trial length and in appeal rates (a proxy of the predictability of decisions), which are only partially explained by restrictions to appeal. Cross-country differences in trial length are related to the shares of the justice budget devoted to computerisation, the systematic production of statistics on case-flow, the active management of the progress of cases by courts, the presence of specialised commercial courts and systems of court governance assigning greater managerial responsibilities to the chief judge. Indicators of good public governance are associated with lower litigation, which in turn has a significant impact on trial length. Free negotiation of lawyers' fees, as opposed to regulated fees, appears to be associated with lower litigation
Why do jobless rates differ? ( Article )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"The Beveridge Curve plots the relationship between unemployment and job vacancies. Stephen Nickell, Luca Nunziata, Wolfgang Ochel and Glenda Quintini look at the evidence on unemployment and wages in all OECD countries from 1960 to the 1990s and conclude that changes in labour market regimes explain most of the observed shifts."--Editor
Unemployment in the OECD since the 1960s. What do we know? ( file )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"This paper presents an empirical analysis of unemployement patterns in the OECD countries from the 1960s to the 1990s. [The] results indicate the following. First, broad movements in unemployement across the OECD can be explained by shifts in labour market institutions. Second, interactions between average values of these institutions and shocks make no significant additional contribution to [the author's] understanding of OECD unemployment changes."--Editor
Inflation adjustment and labour market structures evidence from a multi-country study by Luca Nunziata( Computer File )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"An empirical analysis of the impact of labour market structures on the response of inflation to macroeconomic shocks is presented. Results based on a 20 country panel show that if labour market coordination is high, the effect on inflation of movements in unemployment, import prices, tax rates and productivity is dampened, both on impact and dynamically. In contrast, monopoly power in labour supply, measured by the percentage unionisation of the workforce, appears to amplify the response of inflation to its reduced form determinants. These findings are attributed to the behaviour of wages following movements in demand- and supply-side conditions"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
Job protection and productivity by Andrea Bassanini( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"We examine the effect of dismissal regulation on productivity in the OECD, using annual cross-country aggregate data on the stringency of employment protection legislation and industry-level data on productivity from 1982 to 2003. Our empirical results suggest that mandatory dismissal regulations have a depressing impact on productivity growth in industries where layoff restrictions are more likely to be binding. By contrast, we find no evidence of a productivity effect of regulations concerning temporary contracts, which suggests that partial reforms, facilitating the use of fixed-term and atypical contracts, are unlikely to have an important impact on efficiency and technological change and cannot therefore be a substitute for comprehensive reforms whereby dismissal restrictions for open-ended contracts are also weakened."--Editor

The Implications of Cultural Background on Labour Market Choices: The Case of Religion and Entrepreneurship by Luca Nunziata( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
We suggest a methodology for identifying the implications of alternative cultural and social norms embodied by religious denomination on labour market outcomes, by estimating the differential impact of Protestantism versus Catholicism on the propensity to be an entrepreneur, on the basis of the diverse minority status of both confessions across European regions. Our quasi-experimental research design exploits the stronger degree of attachment to religious ethic of religious minorities and the exogenous historical determination of the geographical distribution of religious minorities in Europe. Our analysis of European Social Survey data collected in four waves between 2002 and 2008 in 22 European countries, indicates that cultural background has a significant effect on the individual propensity to become an entrepreneur, with Protestantism increasing the chances to be an entrepreneur by around 3% with respect to Catholicism. Our findings, stable across a number of robustness checks, provide further evidence on the need to take cultural elements into consideration when analysing economic behaviour
