Sympathy for the Devil? Exploring Flexicurity Win–Win Promises

might be used as a stepping stone toward more secure working conditions. The analysis of drivers reflecting transitions toward permanent contracts and higher salaries can shed light on this issue. Higher levels of self-employment are also assumed to reflect negatively upon the overall level of job security in the economy. Finally, higher rates of involuntary uptake of part-time and temporary jobs will also be related to higher job insecurity. Employment security refers to the probability of staying in employment during the entire career, but not necessarily in

The Marginal Benefit of an Active Labor Market Program Relative to a Public Works Program: Evidence from Papua New Guinea

by 10% from 2013 to 2017 and more than half the population is under the age of 25 years (BPNG 2018; UNFPA 2014). Formal sector employment peaked at 16% of the labor force in 2013 following 6 years of strong economic growth driven from some mining projects; however, since this time the non-mining economy has been undergoing a significant downturn ( Jones and McGavin, 2015 ; BPNG, 2018). Two-thirds of formal sector jobs are in the private sector (heavily concentrated in the wholesale and retail trade sector and construction), with the remainder in the public sector

Economic and Financial Viability Plan for the Enterpreneurship of a Lyric Theatre Low-Cost Company: The Case of Zarzuela in Spain

Abstract

Taking into account that one of the major handicaps when undertaken in the cultural sector is the problem of cost and demand volatility, this paper aims to implement a viability plan for the entrepreneurship of a lyric theatre low-cost company, dedicated to Zarzuela performance, a type of Spanish music like Opera. Firstly, the cultural sector data are analysed in terms of supply and demand and secondly a viability plan is carried out for three years. According to the results it is concluded that this type of venture is very risky if you do not have grant or other financial resources, due to the variability of demand and the increase in unit costs as the artistic performance has a fixed production technology that cannot absorb the technical progress of the rest of the economy.

The Effect of Economies of Scope on Iranian Banking Sector Structure: An Application of Multi-Product Function and Multi-Level Effect Approaches

Abstract

This paper investigates, using a multi-product paradigm, the market structure of the Iranian banking sector to evaluate the role of scale. In so doing, we checked for economies of scope by multi-product cost function as well as the impact of potential economies on the banking sector structure including 18 banks during the period 2008–2014. The changes in Panzar-Rosse H-Statistic as a result of the variety in products reflect changes in the monopolistic power. The results show that an increase in the variety of offered products increases banks’ monopolistic power.
