Human capital and wages in exporting firms by Jan Rose Skaksen( )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper studies the link between a firms education level, export performance and wages of its workers. We argue that firms may escape intence competition in international markets by using high skilled workers to differentiate their products. This story is consistent with our empirical results. Osing a very rich matched worker-firm longitudinal dataset we find that firms with high export intensities pay higher wages. However, an interaction term between export intensity and skill intensity has a positive impact on wages and it absorbs the direct effect of the export intensity. That is, we find an export wage premium, but it accrues to workers in firms with high skill intensities.

Do Foreign Experts Increase the Productivity of Domestic Firms? by Nikolaj Malchow-Møller( )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While most countries welcome (and some even subsidise) high-skilled immigrants, there is very limited evidence of their importance for domestic firms. To guide our empirical analysis, we first set up a simple theoretical model to show how foreign experts may impact on the productivity and wages of domestic firms. Using matched worker-firm data from Denmark and a difference-indifferences matching approach, we then find that firms that hire foreign experts defined as employees eligible for reduced taxation under the Danish "Tax scheme for foreign researchers and key employees" both become more productive (pay higher wages) and increase their exports of goods and services

Hvordan udvikler beskæftigelsen sig i Danmark? : en analyse af forskellige befolkningsgruppers deltagelse på arbejdsmarkedet by Jan Rose Skaksen( Book )

4 editions published in 2019 in Danish and Undetermined and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Danmark har en internationalt set høj arbejdsmarkedsdeltagelse blandt både kvinder og mænd. Den høje beskæftigelse er da også vigtig for sikringen af fremtidens velfærdssamfund. Det, at alle grupper i samfundet ligger højt målt på andelen i beskæftigelse, er tilsvarende en af forudsætningerne for det lige samfund. I bogen analyserer førende økonomer, hvordan beskæftigelsen har udviklet sig for forskellige grupper i en tid med store forandringer. Aldrig har befolkningen været så veluddannet. Men stærke tendenser kan true den høje beskæftigelse. Befolkningens etniske sammensætning har ændret sig, og der er blevet flere unge og flere ældre. Som en lille, åben økonomi er Danmark desuden på godt og ondt særligt eksponeret for globaliseringen og den hurtige udvikling af teknologien. Bogens tema udspringer af et ønske i ROCKWOOL Fonden om også i fremtiden at sikre et økonomisk og socialt bæredygtigt velfærdssamfund. Ambitionen er at skabe et klarere billede af, hvad der påvirker udviklingen i de danske beskæftigelsesfrekvenser, og hvad potentialet er i forhold til at øge beskæftigelsen gennem politiske initiativer. Vægten er lagt på strukturelle ændringer, men også den aktuelle konjunkturpåvirkning inddrages i analysen

Product market integration, comparative advantages and labour market performance by Torben M Andersen( )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Product Market Integration, Comparative Advantages and Labour Market Performance* In a two-country model with trade driven by comparative advantages, it is considered how imperfectly competitive labour markets are affected by lower frictions in international goods trade. Easier goods trading is equivalent to increased mobility of employment across countries and thus a change in the trade-off between wages and employment faced by wage setters. While the effects of product market integration on the trade-off between wages and employment in general is ambiguous, it is shown that product market integration works like a general improvement in productivity via the specialization it allows through trade. Unambiguously, real wages and employment and welfare improve upon reductions in trade frictions, and therefore workers are better off irrespective of whether the market power of unions is enhanced or muted.

Do Immigrants Take the Jobs of Native Workers? by Nikolaj Malchow-Møller( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, we focus on the short-run adjustments taking place at the workplace level when immigrants are employed. Specifically, we analyse whether individual native workers are replaced or displaced by the employment of immigrants within the same narrowly defined occupations at the workplace. For this purpose, we estimate a competing risks duration model for job spells of native workers that distinguishes between job-to-job and job-to-unemployment transitions. In general, we do not find any signs of native workers being displaced by immigrants. Furthermore, we find only very limited signs of replacement of native workers by immigrants. Instead, in particular low-skilled native workers are less likely to lose or leave their jobs when the firms hire immigrants. -- Immigration ; adjustment costs ; displacement ; job spells ; duration model
Do Immigrants Affect Firm-Specific Wages? by Jakob Roland Munch( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, we propose and test a novel effect of immigration on the wages of native workers. Existing studies have focused on the wage effects that result from changes in the aggregate labour supply in a competitive labour market. We argue that if labour markets are not fully competitive, the use of immigrants may also affect wage formation at the most disaggregate level - the workplace. Using linked employeremployee data, we find that an increased use of workers from less developed countries has a significantly negative effect on the wages of native workers at the workplace - also when controlling for potential endogeneity of the immigrant share using both fixed effects and IV. Additional evidence suggests that this effect works at least partly through a general effect on the wage norm in the firm of hiring employees with poor outside options (the immigrants)
Specialization, outsourcing and wages( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper studies the impact of outsourcing on individual wages. In contrast to the standard approach in the literature, we focus on domestic outsourcing as well as foreign outsourcing. By using a simple theoretical model, we argue that, if outsourcing is associated with specialization gains arising from an increase in the extent of the market for intermediate goods, domestic outsourcing tends to increase wages for both unskilled and skilled labor. We use a panel data set of workers in Danish manufacturing industries to show that domestic and foreign outsurcing affect wages as predicted by the theory.

Capital-Skill Complementarity and Rigid Relative Wages : Inference from the Business Cycle by Jan Rose Skaksen( )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relative demand for skills has increased considerably in many OECD countries during recent decades. This development is potentially explained by capital-skill complementarity and high growth rates of capital equipment. When production functions are characterized by capital-skill complementarity, relative wages and employment of skilled labor are countercyclical because capital equipment is a quasi- fixed factor in the short run. The exact behavior of the two variables depends on relative wage flexibility. Relative wages are rigid in Denmark, implying that the employment share of skills should be countercyclical. The labor market is competitive in the United States and therefore relative wages of skilled labor are expected to be countercyclical. We find that the business cycle development of the two economies is consistent with capital-skill complementarity. Keywords: capital-skill complementarity, relative wages, business cycle
