Markups in a dual labour market: the case of the Netherlands

Publication

We follow the production function approach to assess markups, which requires the estimation of the output elasticity of a free input. In the basic setup we estimate a structural value added production function, using temporary contract hours as free input. We find rather stable markups in the Netherlands in the period 2006-2016. We show that extending the free variable incorrectly with fixed contract hours results in an increasing markup.

We find no evidence of diverging productivity between firms on the national frontier and laggard firms.
