Abstract

This comment shows that some of Pisauro’s (Journal of Public Economics, 1991, 46, 329–345) reported results hold only if the unemployment rate exceeds 50%. If it does not, specific labor taxes reduce wages. Also, output falls when employment rises, all else equal, and minimum wage laws raise output.
