▷ 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:
vocational education systems, and
economic cooperation and coordination.
