This chapter analyses the OECD's labour markets and assesses employment development in different countries. It considers different economic sectors in analyzing different kinds of employment regime. Four sectors saw important job growth during the period covered by the OECD study: trade, finance and business services, private community and social services, and public services. The results of the OECD study also suggest that Japanese and US forms of capitalism are more able to provide employment than many of their European counterparts.

Keywords:   OECD, labour markets, employment, trade, finance, business services, private community, social services, public services, capitalism
