dc.description.abstractThe paper analyzes the contemporary organizational restructuring ofproduction and work and derives some salient implications for the labor market. Theanalysis focuses on the switch from occupational specialization at “Tayloristic”organizations to multi-tasking at “holistic” organizations. The restructuring process isshown to create demands for new combinations of skills and thereby “resegment” thelabor market, raising the wages and job opportunities of some workers relative toothers.We are indebted to Michael Orszag for his insightful comments, and have benefitedfrom the suggestions of Ruth Klinov, Reuben Gronau, Eric Mellander, TorstenPersson, Jorgen Weibull, and seminar participants at the Hebrew University ofJerusalem, the Industrial Institute for Economic and Social Research (Stockholm), andthe Institute for International Economic Studies (Stockholm). We have profited fromdiscussions with Solveig Wikstrom on the reorganization of firms, and are grateful toJorgen Nilsson for drawing the figures.-
