Patrick A. Messerlin ()

No 9, OECD Jobs Study Working Papers from OECD Publishing


This paper studies whether the belief is justified that foreign trade and capital outflows have dramatically reduced the number of jobs available to French workers and are leading to a substantial decline in French wages, especially of low-skilled workers.

L'impact des échanges et de l'investissement direct étranger sur les marchés du travail : Le cas français

Ce document examine le bein-fondé de l’idée reçu suivant laquelle les échanges internationaux et les flux de capitaux ont réduit serieusement le nombre d’emplois à la disposition des travailleurs en France et sont en train de faire baisser les niveaux salariaux, surtout à l’encontre des travailleurs français moins qualifiés.
