    Las economías capitalistas europeas tienden hacia una mayor flexibilizacion de sus mercados laborales comoo una condición necesaria, aunque no suficiente, para conseguir alcanzar un crecimiento económico sostenido en sus actuales sistemas económicos. Esta flexibilidad se basa principalmente en la reducción de los costes laborales unitarios, tanto salariales como no salariales, donde remuneración se iguala a productividad. En el presente trabajo se plantea si dicha flexibilidad es la respuesta al agotamiento del actual modelo de desarrollo y, por lo tanto, a las exigencias de cambios estructurales en el mismo, donde la flexibilidad se basaría en la búsqueda de nuevas formas de relación laboral que conllevarían a nuevas dinámicas en la estructura productiva y organizativa de cada país. En este caso la reducción de los costes laborales sería el resultado de dicho cambio y no la medida flexibilizadora por excelencia. The european capitalist economies tend to a greater flexibility within their labour market. This fact, is a required condition, (it is not enough, indeed) to achieve a growth in economy mantained in their current economic systems. This flexibility is mainly based on the reduction of the unitary labour costs, were remuneration equalizesa to productivity. The aim of this essay, is to analyse and state whelther such flexibility is the answer to the exhaustion of the current economic development pattern. Furthermore, it will be also analysed whether such flexibility is the answer to the exhaustion of the current economic development pattern. Furthermore, it will be also analysed whether this flexibility is the solution to the requests for a structural change within the system in itserf, where flexibility would depend on the search for new ways of labour relationship. These relationships, would lead to a change in the productive and organizative structure of every single country. In this way, the reduction in the labour costs, would be the result of such change, and not, the main flexibility rule.
