dc.description.abstractWorksharing is considered by many as a promising public policy to reduce unemployment. Inthis paper we present a review of the most pertinent theoretical and empirical contributions tothe literature on worksharing. In addition, we also provide new empirical evidence on this issue,by a cross country analysis exploiting aggregate data for 13 OECD countries. The conclusions ofthe literature survey are indecisive. Conclusions about the efficacy of worksharing as anemployment enhancing policy tool depend heavily on the setting in which the analysis takesplace. Our empirical analysis does not find any evidence for the proposition that worksharingwould promote employment or reduce unemployment. In an appendix we present an overview ofrecent public policy experience of European Countries with respect to different forms ofworksharing. Also here the evidence is mixed.en_US
