ABSTRACT En este trabajo se sintetizan algunos resultados preliminares obtenidos por los autores en su estudio acerca del impacto de la inflación sobre la participación del trabajo en la renta nacional. Dicho análisis se lleva a cabo con datos correspondientes a 15 países de la OCDE y abarca el período 1960-1999. Los resultados muestran una relación positiva entre el nivel de inflación y la participación de las rentas del trabajo que pone en duda la neutralidad distributiva de los procesos de desinflación. Esta relación cambia su signo para la componente no anticipada de la inflación.

    ABSTRACT: This paper examines the effect of nominal contracting provisions on employment determination in union contracts. In most contracts, the nominal wage rate is wholly or partially predetermined. Real wage rates therefore contain unanticipated components that reflect unexpected price changes and the degree of indexation. The empirical analysis, based on a large sample of indexed and nonindexed contracts, suggests that unexpected real wage changes are associated with systematic employment responses in the opposite direction. The author concludes that nominal contracting provisions play a potentially important role in the cyclical properties and persistence of employment movements in the union sector.

    ABSTRACT: To the extent that union-employer bargaining is efficient, price-cost margins in oligopolistic industries are predicted to depend on wage rents and on the elasticity of substitution between wages and employment in union preferences. Unanticipated wage inflation will also affect margins. Cross-section and time-series analysis of price-cost margins in U.K. manufacturing industries finds that margins tend to be eroded by the level of wage rents and are invariant to the rate of wage inflation.
