Private versus public ownership: implications for the labour market
PTDC/EGE-ECO/102914/2008
 
 
Objectivos:
What are the labour market implications of public versus private ownership of firms? We want to contribute to this general question
by addressing four specific issues:
1. How does public versus private ownership affect centrally bargained wages and local wage drift? Is the wage drift higher or lower
in industries with more public ownership?
2. How does public versus private ownership affect the degree of rent-sharing between firms and workers?
3. How does public versus private ownership affect the composition of the workforce? In particular, do public firms have a different
skill composition than private firms?
4. How does public versus private ownership affect gender wage discrimination?
We will analyze these questions both theoretically and empirically, and one of our major aims is to make a strong and explicit link between economic theory and empirical analysis.
