Notes
  • This paper lays out a simple open economy macromodel based on the recent literature on imperfect competition and equilibrium unemployment.

La discussion théorique est illustrée par l’expérience récente de la Norvège. L’article fait également l’analyse des coûts et des avantages des politiques de revenus dans les économies où les syndicats jouent un rôle important.
