Responsive rules that match a context according to a rule’s goal, the rules of responsibility that clearly define the responsibility of actors and tools that enable monitoring, and/or the gap between the written and enforced rules is necessary for a trustworthy legal system. It is necessary to draw attention not only to the areas typically mentioned in documents (e.g. the insufficient institutional efficiency and performance characterized by lengthy administrative procedures, the inefficiency of public spending and governance

Asymmetric Information and the Discount on Foreign-Acquired Degrees in Canada

output losses due to technical inefficiency. Unlike various decomposition methods analyzing the wage differentials between immigrant and native-born workers, the SWF model recognizes that differences in observed wage earnings reflect not only variations in the “potential” productivity but also differences in departures from this potential productivity due to market imperfections. The frontier approach defines “efficiency” as the maximum output that firms can produce from a given set of inputs or the maximum wages workers can earn from a given set of human capital

EUR 2,000 billion or 14% of the EU GDP. European Commission (2017) . Such large amount of funds calls for well-considered spending decisions and for maximum efficiency and effectiveness of public spending

Reallocation and the Role of Firm Composition Effects on Aggregate Wage Dynamics

-level differences in the occupational composition of their workforce. To conclude, we suggest a possible interpretation of this employment shift from low- to high-wage firms and its contribution to aggregate wage dynamics, in terms of changes in allocative efficiency and aggregate productivity. This interpretation takes the stand from the well-documented fact that wages and labor productivity are correlated across firms. We show that this correlation holds in our data and that changes in the OP contribution to the aggregate wage are positively associated with changes in
