New publications from OECD, late November 2016

How important are exports for job growth in China? A demand side analysis

We analyze the impact of foreign demand on Chinese employment creation by extending the global input–output methodology introduced by Johnson and Noguera (2012). We find that between 1995 and 2001, fast growth in foreign demand was offset by strong increases in labor productivity and the net effect on employment was nil. Between 2001 and 2006, booming foreign demand added about 70 million jobs. These jobs were overridingly for workers with only primary education. Since 2006 growth in domestic demand for non-tradables has become more important for job creation than foreign demand, signaling a rebalancing of the Chinese economy.

Job Creation and Local Economic Development

Job Creation and Local Economic Development, a publication launched by OECD on 19 November 2014, looks at new evidence on policies to support job creation. Produced as part of the OECD Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme, the report addresses the question of how national and local policies can be better aligned with local opportunities and challenges, with the goal of creating more and better quality jobs.

The volume in its entirety as well as individual sections and country profiles are accessible for online reading and download from the OECD iLibrary by WTO staff and WTO Library patrons.

A wealth of additional resources are available from the OECD iLibrary on a range of topics, including economics and employment. More information on the LEED Programme can be found at the OECD website.

Union wage-setting and international trade with footloose capital

This paper sets up a general oligopolistic equilibrium model with two countries that differ in the centralization of union wage-setting. Being interested in the consequences of openness, we show that, in the short run, trade increases welfare and employment in both locations, and it raises income of capital owners as well as workers. In the long run, capital outflows from the country with the more centralized wage-setting generate winners and losers and make the two countries more dissimilar in terms of unemployment or welfare. Decentralization of wage-setting can successfully prevent capital outflow and the export of jobs.

The growth-employment relationship since 2000 – India

This discussion paper is a brief assessment of the employment challenge that became manifest in the Indian economy during the past decade. It analyses various available economic indicators and presents estimates that highlight the structural transformations that have taken place. The key issue that the paper examines is whether high rates of growth registered by the Indian economy in the past decade were accompanied by substantive growth in employment. It brings out how the Indian economy over the last decade seems to have experienced all the classic features earmarked in literature while discussing the crisis of employment in case of large developing countries.
