Social Corporatism

A Superior Economic System?

Distinct from both socialism and capitalism, social corporatism is defined in this book as an economic system in which the labor market is organized by centralized wage bargaining and is non-exclusive as well as egalitarian. The study focuses on the links between the degree of corporatism and macroeconomic performance.
