THE DUNLOP COMMISSION'S OMISSIONS ON AMERICAN LABOR MARKET POLICY
DANIEL J. B. MITCHELL
MAHMOOD A. ZAIDI
In 1994 and 1995, a U.S. presidential task force called the "Dunlop Commission" issued reports on the labor market and made various public policy recommendations. The commission's fact-finding report identified a variety of problems, primarily economic, such as widening wage inequality, lagging productivity, and unemployment. However, the commission's recommendation report limited its focus primarily to collective bargaining labor law and proposed solutions that appeared unlikely to have a significant impact on the problems identified in the first report. The commission's narrow charge, its insistence on maintaining a consensus among its members, and the limited range of views represented by its membership explain these inconsistencies.
