Reforming Dual Labor Markets In Advanced Economies

Labor market duality has increased dramatically in many advanced countries in recent years. While duality has some positive aspects, microeconomic and cross-country studies suggest that an excessive reliance on “non-regular” employment has a negative impact on total factor productivity (TFP) and growth, according to Giovanni Ganelli. His excellent article summarizes recent research on this topic, and draws some policy implications for reforms aimed at reducing duality and creating more inclusive labor markets in advanced economies.
