State labour market intervention in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay : common model, different versions

Employment and Training Papers No. 10

Investigates whether the labour market intervention model adopted by the OECD countries has been useful in the cases of Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. Focuses on employment policy in the three countries in the 1990s. Suggests that the OECD model shaped patterns of intervention, but finds that emulation has been only partial and there has been substantial divergence in the application of the model among the three countries.
