Corporatism or Competition? is concerned with the importance of institutions in determining labor market outcomes. There has been a great deal of research in the past ten years comparing wage differences, wage movements and employment behavior in different countries, none of which has been brought together in an organized and coherent fashion. The aim of this book is to fill the gap. The book is destined to become a standard work in labor economics.
