Why Deregulate Labour Markets?

Labour market reform in France has been very weak. Although measures such as the easing of fixed-term contracts and elimination of administrative authorisation for dismissals in 1986 were followed by a period of employment creation, it cannot be said that these were instrumental in employment recovery. Proponents of deregulation can use the French case to argue that more is required to solve unemployment. Critics can also use the French case to argue that institutional changes in the labour market do not improve employment and unemployment conditions.
