Structural Change, Competition and Job Turnover in the Swedish Manufacturing Industry 1964-96
Abstract: The rate of inter-industry job turnover in Swedish
manufacturing seems to be driven by the dispersion of profit changes among
industries. Shifts in international competitiveness among industries played
a central role for explaining this pattern. The rate of intra-industry job
turnover among plants has been higher in industries with many small plants,
low profit margins and high import penetration.
