The unemployment performance in OECD countries has been divers over the
past decades. A growing „Varieties of capitalism“-literature focuses on
institutional differences in social welfare, labour market and collective
bargaining systems and recommends a curtailment of social provisions and a
deregulation of labour markets. This book takes a different approach:
market constellations (institutionally embedded macropolicy regimes) are
central to divergent employment performances. And the willingness to
create pro-employment market constellations depends largely on vested
interests of the elites.
