Works Councils and Employment Growth: - A Reply to Addison and Teixeira
In this reply, I argue that Addison and Teixeira’s rejoinder to my study is characteristically misleading and erroneous. While the authors agree that my investigation is interesting in its own right, they doubt that my findings indicate misspecification. But they ignore almost all of the German studies on employment growth. While Addison and Teixeira admit several serious mistakes in their tables, they do a poor job in comparing their paper with my study. Basically, they compare apples with oranges. Addison and Teixeira complain that I do not appreciate the overall contribution of their analysis. Yet, this simply distracts from the fundamental issue. Finally, the authors come up with personal allegations and attacks that are far away from good scientific style. In their attempt to discredit my study, Addison and Teixeira do even not provide correct citations of what I wrote.
