The Impact of Trade and Foreign Direct Investment on Labour Markets: The French Case

Patrick Messerlin

No 9, OECD Jobs Study Working Papers from OECD Publishing

Abstract: 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.
