Abstract

In this study three possible determinants of the increased demand for skilled workers are tested using a panel of 412 Italian manufacturing firms over the period 1989-1997. The results suggest the statistical significance of the impact of organisational change, while they tend to exclude the roles of R&D spending and foreign direct investment.
