Qualitative Efficiency Assessment of Markets: An Institutional Approach to Training
AbstractWe investigate the effect of institutions on efficiency of training markets. After setting up a theoretical institutional framework that shows how institutions affect efficiency, we apply this framework to the real world. An empirical analysis of institutions affecting training markets will enable us to determine the institutional efficiency of these markets, under the assumption that a positive relationship exists between efficiency and productivity. Finally, we compare institutional efficiency scores of national training markets to other measures of productivity and ask whether a particular set of institutions maximises efficiency.
