The Cost of Social Pacts

Nicola Acocella and Giovanni Di Bartolomeo ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Social pacts, while improving macroeconomic performance, usually impose costs on unions. To facilitate the formation of such pacts, various substitutes can operate, such as the payment of transfers or, to some extent, the conservativeness of the government, union’s inflation aversion or political partisanship.
