Robustness and feasibility of corporatism

Nicola Acocella and Giovanni Di Bartolomeo ()

No 44, Working Papers from University of Rome La Sapienza, Department of Public Economics

Abstract: By considering a standard game between the Government and a centralised trade union, we investigate the robustness of the claim that corporatism has a positive effect on macroeconomic performance. We test this claim with respect to different kinds of non-co-operative equilibria, model parameterisations and union’s utility functions (different in both form and arguments). Furthermore, we introduce in the literature the issue of the feasibility of corporatism, i.e., whether and under what conditions it is in the interest of both agents to implement a corporatist approach to economic policies.
