(p.35) Chapter 3 Economic Development and Labor Conditions
Globalization and Labor Conditions

Robert J. Flanagan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter reveals the influence of economic development, national economic and political institutions, and social diversity on labor conditions. Putting globalization aside, the foremost positive influence on labor conditions is level of development (a country’s real per capita income). Policies that raise per capita income improve virtually all labor conditions. At any level of development, however, countries still differ in their labor conditions. The chapter shows how democratic government, protection of property rights, and the degree of ethnic and religious diversity influence this remaining international variation in labor conditions.

Keywords:   democracy, economic development, economic growth, ethnic diversity, per capita income, political institutions, religious diversity
