Serve la deregolazione del mercato del lavoro? Occupazione e disoccupazione in America e in Europa

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The prevailing view today is that Europe's mass unemployment is caused by excessive labor market regulation. In this article I will show that strict employment protection, wage equality, and generous social rights do not influence levels of unemployment in any meaningful way. They do, however, affect who happens to pay the price of unemployment. Hence, a strategy of radical de-regulation may help redistribute unemployment across the population, but we cannot expect it to resolve the basic problem, namely mass unemployment.
