This chapter tests the utility of dominant typologies of modern capitalism in accounting for different patterns of relationship among characteristics of industrial relations systems, the regulation of conditions of employment, and labour-related social spending. It further relates these variables to indicators of economic ‘success’ in the provision of employment and the pursuit of innovation. It finds some, but weak, support for certain elements in typologies, but speculates that the most important differences among capitalist economies might lie at a different level.

Keywords: industrial relations; labour protection; social spending; types of capitalism; economic success; world system
