Flexicurity policies and their association with productivity in the European Union
Primož Dolenc, Suzana Laporšek, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: The paper examines the issue of flexicurity in the EU Member States and studies the association between flexicurity policy components (i.e. employment protection legislation, lifelong learning programs, active and passive labour market policies) and labour and total factor productivity growth in 20 EU Member States over the 19912008 period. The empirical analysis pointed on the existence of large differences in the level of implementation of flexicurity policies across EU Member States, by which the least successful are NMS, especially with regard to active labour market and lifelong learning programs. As regards the relation between flexicurity variables and productivity growth, panel regression estimates showed that active labour market policies and participation in lifelong learning programs have a statistically significant positive association with labour and total factor productivity growth. On the other hand, rigid employment protection and high expenditures for passive labour market policies negatively relate to productivity growth.

Labour taxation and its impact on employment growth
Suzana Laporšek, Primož Dolenc, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: The paper aims to assess the characteristics of labour taxation for five different groups of workers and labour market performance (in terms of employment and unemployment rate) in the EU and to examine whether tax wedge affects employment growth in the EU. The descriptive empirical estimates show that the level of labour taxation varies greatly across EU Member States, by which the tax wedge tends to be higher among New Member States (excluding Cyprus and Malta). Furthermore, the panel regression analyses confirm statistically significant negative relationship between tax wedge and employment growth in the EU as a whole. Therefore, the empirical analysis suggests that the EU-27 should continue with the trend of reducing tax wedge, as this would have favourable effects on labour market performance, especially among New Member States.

Tax wedge on labour
Primož Dolenc, Milan Vodopivec, 2005, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: When taxes on labor are introduced the tax wedge between labor costs paid by employer (gross wage) and net wage received by employee appears. At a certain level of wage, higher tax wedge on labor increases unemployment and decreases employment, ceteris paribus. The paper tackles with thee main questions: characteristics of tax wedge on labor, unemployment and employment rate in OECD countries in near past, tax wedge on labor policy in EU15 and new EU members and tax system and its effects on unemployment and employment rate in Slovenia. We found that OECD countries can be classified in two groups of countries if tax wedge on labor, unemployment rate and employment rate are taken into consideration. First group is high tax wedge, high unemployment rate and low employment rate group of countries, whereas the other group has alternative characteristics. European member states (old and new) have on average higher tax burden on labor than OECD average, consequentlz suffering from higher unemployment rates. Slovenia has unreasonably high tax wedge on labor; in EU onlz Belgium and Germany have a higher tax burden. According to previous and our empirical findings we suggest that Slovenia could benefit from lowering tax wedge.

Agro-food exports variety from the Central and Eastern European countries
Štefan Bojnec, Imre Fertő, 2012, original scientific article

Abstract: This paper analyses the agro-food exports variety from twelve Central and Eastern European countries (CEECs) to the European Union (EU) during the years 1995-2007. The panel regression models explain the agro-food exports by its previous year, income in the importing EU countries, and measure of agro-food export product variety, while the real exŽchange rate appreciation of the CEECcurrencies has negatively influenced agro-food exports. The EU enlargement with the reduction in agricultural protection and the borderless single market has induced agro-food export increases in primary agŽricultural produce and intermediate food-processed products, but less in higher value-added food-processed differentiated products. The impact of increased number of CEECs agro-food product varieties on agro-food export to the EU is positive.

How flexicure are new EU member states?
Suzana Laporšek, Primož Dolenc, 2012, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The paper analyses the state of implementation of flexicurity policy components in the NMS and, by using panel regression analysis, estimates the relationship between flexicurity policy components (i.e., employment protection legislation, expenditures for active employment policies, participation in lifelong learning and net replacement rate) and labour productivity and long-term unemployment. The empirical analysis showed that the labour markets in the NMS are, on overall, not more rigid than the labour markets in the EU-15, however problematic remain low expenditure for active labour market policies, education and social protection and low participation in lifelong learning. NMS must, according to the results of the panel linear regression, improve their performance in mentioned areas in order to improve their labour productivity and decrease long-term unemployment.
