The paper introduces a model of how workers rationally decide to which country within an area of monetary and economic integration they will move for the purposes of living and working. Since Mundell accomplished his pivotal respective analyses, the Optimal Currency Area (OCA) literature has highlighted the importance of the reallocation of the labour force within common currency areas in order to cushion asymmetric shocks. However, several studies have put into question whether such a mobility may be considered adequately effective and efficient within the Euro Zone and, hence, political solutions have been urgently requested. This paper, using the concept of employment protection legislation (EPL), looks at the impact of the different flexibility degrees applied among national labour markets on the international labour movements within the Euro Zone, and it then proposes a reform of such in terms of the degrees of flexibility that could achieve the optimal point.

The aim of this study is to develop, test and validate based on a conceptual research model, the influence of education on the GDP/capita, starting from relevant theories and empirical models from literature or implementing additional impact models and variables. Building on the model developed by Mincer (1995) on the yield rates of investment in education, we applied econometric models for Romania, for the period 1960-2010. The results led to a main conclusion, namely, the importance of investment in education is undeniable, it has positive effect on the economic growth of Romania.
