Efficiency and Equality in the Labour Market

Jonas Agell ()

Abstract: This paper discusses the costs and benefits of welfare state intervention in the labour market, and argues that many forms of intervention can be justified for efficiency reasons. The paper reviews recent evidence on income inequality and income mobility, and it discusses labour market reforms that may improve efficiency without violating European votersí preference for equality.
