Wages and Employment under Trade Unionism: Microeconomic Models and Macroeconomic Applications
1985 (English)Report (Other academic)
The first part of this paper critically surveys microeconomic research into behavioural models of trade unionism. Though certain formulations of union objectives and models of wage and employment determination in unionized markets have found favor with economists, unfortunately only a little is known about their empirical relevance. The second part of this paper considers the daunting problems of applying these models at the macroeconomic level. One such model is estimated with data from Sweden's manufacturing and mining sector from 1968 to 1982.
