Labor Market Analysis and Public Policy: The Case of Morocco
AbstractThis article uses detailed industry and household data to understand why Morocco's labor market performed poorly in 1985-95. The data indicate that marked structural changes and weak demand in the product market were responsible. This article makes two contributions to the literature. The first is specific: it underscores that the demand for labor is a derived demand and that the performance of the product market is an important determinant of the performance of the labor market. The second is more general: it demonstrates that this kind of microeconomic analysis, using data sets that are often available in developing countries, can inform policy design.
