Institutions and Wage Formation in the New Europe
addresses the role played by institutions in European wage formation with
a focus on EMU and institutional change in labour markets.
this general heading there are three broad but distinct themes. The first
emphasises the role of institutions in affecting the dispersion of wages
across occupational, age, skill, and industry and employment contract
categories. The contributors make clear the profound effect that European
institutions can have in influencing, and in most cases compressing, such
pay differentials with consequent implications for the employment
prospects of certain segments of the labour force. The second theme is the
explanation for recent wage moderation in Europe. The contributions under
this theme stress the role of developments in the bargaining systems of
European countries and the presence of a number of temporary or specific
factors, which have helped to bring about pay moderation. The final theme
is the extent to which institutions are changing within Europe in the
light of EMU and the adoption of new business practices.
