Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the concepts of ‘flexibility’ and ‘deregulation’ used in the debate on labour markets. It argues that the outright deregulation of labour markets may be neither feasible nor beneficial in terms of greater flexibility. Both flexibility and deregulation have numerous meanings and a range of consequences, which should be carefully considered before taking any action.

Keywords: labour market; deregulation; flexibility
