10 - Wage adjustment in Spain: slow, inefficient and unfair?

10 - Wage adjustment in Spain: slow, inefficient and unfair?

November 2014

Our analysis of microeconomic data between 2008 and 2013 suggests that real aggregate wages in Spain fell by about 4.5% over the period 2008-2013. However, this aggregate figure masks a greater underlying reduction in individual wages, which occurred at the same time as changes in the composition of the employed population: as massive labour shedding was taking place, more tenured, more educated, and more qualified workers tended to be relatively less affected.

196 - Member States' Energy Dependence: An Indicator-Based Assessment

June 2014

Over recent years, EU economies have been exposed to energy price increases leading to adverse effects on consumers and industries. Some economies have also been confronted with disruptions to gas supply, affecting gas-dependent industrial activities and households. Arguably, the EU economy will continue to be exposed to risks related to energy prices, including potential oil shocks or gas shortages.

We study the joint dynamics of foreign capital flows and real activity during the recent boom-bust cycle of the Spanish economy, using a three-country New Keynesian model with credit-constrained households and firms, a construction sector and a government. We estimate the model using 1995Q1-2013Q2 data for Spain, the rest of the Euro Area (REA) and the rest of the world.
