Philip Pilkington on the ILO and trade unions (and more)

Philip Pilkington has a very interesting post on a post of his regarding a joint report by the ILO, OECD and the World Bank. As he points out, the ILO usually mostly talks sense, in economic terms. This can be also seen in a series of discussion papers on wage-led growth, such as this one by Storm and Naastepad. I recently read quite a lot of this literature, because I wanted to understand why labour unions have adopted so much of the standard economic discourse. A conference paper I wrote on ‘counter-intuitive bargaining targets’ is not anymore online, but I hope to develop into something that focuses on the practical goals labour unions should set.
