dc.description.abstractLocational competition means that the immobile factors of production in a country competefor internationally mobile capital and technology. Locational competition influencesthe restraint set of national players and redefines their opportunity costs. Thus, the bargainingposition of the trade unions is affected. Also the manoeuvring space of governmentin terms of taxation and institutional arrangements is reduced. Governments aremore or less forced into an economic policy (and institutional) benchmarking. A high degreeof openness means that a country is exposed more to external changes. We thereforecan expect that smaller countries will be the innovators in world wide institutionalcompetition.-
