Workshop on International Labor and Productivity Comparisons

On October 15, 2015, The Conference Board International Labor Comparisons program, with the support of the Alfred P. Sloan foundation, hosted a Workshop on International Labor and Productivity Comparisons. The Conference Board researchers presented a series of white papers on three main research topics:

  • The relationship between wages and productivity
  • Competitiveness and unit labor cost trends and improvements
  • Labor cost projections

During the workshop, paper discussants and workshop attendees were asked to provide comments on TCB research.  The authors have incorporated feedback from the workshop and have published the resulting white papers as part of The Conference Board Economics Program Working Paper series. The working papers are free and available to the public for download.
