Notes
  • This paper presents empirical evidence on the role that policy and institutional settings in both product and labour market play for productivity and firm dynamics. It exploits a new firm-level database for ten OECD countries and industry-level data for a broader set of countries, together with a set of indicators of regulation and institutional settings in product and labour markets. Aggregate productivity patterns are largely the result of within-firm performance. But, the contribution from firm dynamic processes should not be overlooked, most notably in high-tech industries where new firms tend to play an important role. Industry productivity performance is negatively affected by strict product market regulations, especially if there is a significant technology gap with the technology leader. Likewise, high hiring and firing costs seem to hinder productivity, especially when these costs are not offset by lower wages and/​or more internal training. Moreover, burdensome regulations ...

Plus particulièrement, les nouvelles entreprises tendent a avoir un rôle important dans les secteurs des nouvelles technologies. De fortes réglementations sur le marche des biens ont un impact négatif sur la productivité des entreprises ; cela est d’autant plus le cas qu’ il existe un écart technologique important avec le leader ...
