Externalités et contrats salariaux

  • Hubert Kempf

[eng] Externalities and Wage Agreements, by Hubert Kempf. Much work has recently been done on examining wage agreements from the purely macroeconomic standpoint. The purpose of this paper is to give a survey of this approach. It emphasizes its underlying problematics: wage agreements are the results of a lack of coordination bringing about externalities. In this respect, research on wage agreements is connected with today's revival of macroeconomics, which deals more and more with lack of coordination. [spa] External idades y contratos salariales, por Hubert Kempf . Recientemente se han dedicado numerosos trabajos al estudio de los contratos salariales con una perspectiva específicamente macroeconómica. El presente artículo da una presentatión sintética de estas publicaciones, poniendo énfasis en la problemática subyacente de esta corriente : los contratos salariales son el resultatdo de la falta de coordinatión que genera externalidades. Las investigaciones sobre los contratos salariales son frecuentemente abordadas en términos de ausencie de coordinatión. [ger] Externalitäten und Tarifverträge, von Hubert Kempf . Zahlreiche Arbeiten wurden in letzter Zeit der Untersuchung der Tarifverträge in spezifisch makroökonomischer Hinsicht gewidmet. Der vorliegende Artikel zielt darauf ab, einen zusammenfassenden Überblick über diese Studien zu geben, indem er die ihnen zugrundeliegende Problematik besonders hervorhebt : die Tarifverträge sind das Ergebnis einer durch das Fehlen an Koordination gekennzeichneten Situation und bewirken deshalb Externalitäten. Die Untersuchungen über die Tarifverträge schliessen sich somit der gegenwärtigen Erneuerung der Makroökonomie an, bei der immer häufiger das Fehlen an Koordination in Ansatz gebracht wird. [fre] Externalités et contrats salariaux, par Hubert Kempf. De nombreux travaux ont été récemment consacrés à l'étude des contrats salariaux dans une perspective spécifiquement macroéconomique. L'objet du présent article est de donner une présentaton synthétique de cette littérature, en mettant l'accent sur la problématique sous-jacente à ce courant: les contrats salariaux y sont les produits d'une situation de non-coordination et engendrent ainsi des externalités. Les recherches sur les contrats salariaux s'articulent ainsi au renouvellement actuel de la macroéconomie, de plus en plus souvent abordée en termes de non-coordination.
