Industrial organisation & frameworks


▷  Why is productivity systematically lower in some countries than in others?

▷  Does the model of industrial organisation, and its recent evolution, matter for economic performance?

▷  (How) can policymakers influence long-term, sustainable economic performance?


Political economy helps explain how variations in the strength of labour market institutions have produced industrial conditions with effects on:

  • interest representations,

  • wage bargaining,

  • vocational education systems, and

  • economic cooperation and coordination.
