Title:Civic attitudes and the design of labor market institutions: which countries can implement the Danish flexicurity model? PDF Logo
Authors:Algan, Yann
Cahuc, Pierre
Issue Date:2006
Series/Report no.:IZA Discussion Papers 1928
Abstract:We argue that the efficiency of the Danish flexicurity Model, which combines high unemployment benefits with low job protection and high participation rate, relies on strong public-spiritedness. We also argue that Continental and Mediterranean European countries are unlikely to be able to implement the Danish Model because the lack of public-spiritedness of their citizens raises moral hazard issues which hinder the implementation of efficient public unemployment insurance.
