Labor Market Institutions and the Effects of Financial Openness

Qingyuan Du, Jun Nie () and Shang-Jin Wei

No RWP 19-11, Research Working Paper from Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City

Abstract: We propose a new channel to explain why developing countries may fail to benefit from financial globalization, based on labor market institutions. In our model, financial openness in a developing country with a rigid labor market leads to capital outflow, and both employment and output fall. In contrast, financial openness in a developing country with a flexible labor market benefits the country. Our model suggests that enhancing labor market flexibility is a complementary reform for developing countries opening capital accounts.
