Author(s):

Declining Wages for College-Educated Workers in Mexico: Are Younger or Older Cohorts Hurt the Most?
Journal:
43 - 2016
Author(s):
Raymundo M. CAMPOS-VAZQUEZ, Luis F. LOPEZ-CALVA and Nora LUSTIG
Abstract:
A reduction in the wage premium for skilled labor –and a consistent reduction of overall wage inequality–has played an important role in explaining the fall of income inequality in Latin America during the 2000-2014 period. Consistent with that pattern, wage inequality declined in Mexico since 2000. This paper investigates the possible channels on why the wages of high-skilled workers have declined.

Minimum Wages and Inequality in Mexico: A Latin American Perspective
Journal:
43 - 2016
Author(s):
Juan Carlos MORENO-BRID, Stefanie GARRY and Alice KROZER
Abstract:
Mexico’s minimum wage has experienced a persistent decline in real terms since the 1970s. At the same time the share of wages in national income has declined steadily, while inequality remains one of the most pressing socioeconomic challenges. Despite some important recent progress in Mexican policy, raising the minimum wage in a sustainable manner to meet the constitutional mandate and support a reduction in inequality in the country requires a more profound policy change.

Unit Labour Costs in the Success of German Exports (1999-2007)
Journal:
43 - 2016
Author(s):
Eduardo GARZÓN ESPINOSA and Rafael FERNÁNDEZ SÁNCHEZ
Abstract:
The German commercial success is often associated to the strategy of internal devaluation that entailed a moderate wage growth. However, the main argument in this paper is that necessarily there have to be other important and different factors that explain the outstanding trade performance, especially the evolution of productivity derived from different export specializations between commercial partners.

Abstract:
En este trabajo analizamos el impacto de las políticas de austeridad sobre el crecimiento a largo plazo en aquellos países de la Unión Europea más castigados por la crisis económica, conocidos con el acrónimo peyorativo PIGS (Portugal, Irlanda, Grecia y España). Si la tasa de crecimiento a largo plazo de la Eurozona se ha contraído en 1,4 puntos durante la actual crisis, en el caso de los PIGS esa contracción está en el rango 2 - 5,6 puntos.

Abstract:
Este trabajo analiza la estrategia de fragmentación internacional de la producción y la conformación de redes transnacionales en la Unión Europea. A partir de la estimación, con diferentes técnicas, de un modelo de gravedad con datos de comercio de partes y componentes para el sector de la maquinaria y material de transporte, encontramos el papel protagonista que tienen las economías centrales, y en particular Alemania, en tales redes.

Abstract:
In this paper, a comparative analysis between the main political citizen attitudes before the crisis in Iceland and Spain is carried out. After a brief review of political and economical antecendents, it was concluded that in Spain, as well as in Iceland, the key explanatory factors of the deep economic imbalances are located at the institutional sphere.
