Systeem van de arbeidskosten per eenheid, OESO


ULCs increased significantly (by 1.1%) in the United States, at least partly reflecting the impact of the severe winter on output and labour productivity, which fell by 1.1%. ULCs in Japan fell significantly (minus 1.8%), driven by labour productivity gains (1.8%), which may have been temporarily boosted as output rose in anticipation of the April increase in consumption tax. In both Japan and the United States, labour compensation was flat. ULCs rose by 0.2% in the Euro area in the first quarter of 2014, driven by increasing labour compensatio... Lees Meer »

Amerikaanse herstel zou kunnen worden versterkt door belangrijke hervormingen, OESO zegt


The U.S. recovery has spread across a wide array of sectors. Most banks have generally returned to health, housing prices are rising and unemployment has fallen. That said, growth could be bolstered by new reforms of taxes, education, training, immigration and working conditions – all of which could improve the economic prospects of middle-class families. “This isn’t a business as usual recovery for the United States – the pace of growth is slow in historical perspective,” OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría said during the Survey launch in ...

Arbeidsmarkthervormingen van Spanje op het goede spoor, maar meer hulp nodig voor jonge werkzoekenden, zegt OESO


The OECD Review of the 2012 Labour Market Reform in Spain says that, despite the still difficult economic environment, more firms have been hiring workers on permanent contracts since the law was passed. However, more needs to be done to reduce the unemployment rate that stood at 26.7% in October. Fighting unemployment proves particularly difficult because world economic growth and trade are below expectations. Job creation and ensuring that those without a job are not left behind should be the top priority of the Government in the coming mo... Lees Meer »
