NBER Working Paper No. 18006
Issued in April 2012

---- Acknowledgements -----

I am deeply grateful to Stepan Jurajda of the Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education of the Charles University and the Economics Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences; without his collaboration over the last decade this project would not have been possible. Martin Baily, then at the McKinsey Global institute, was invaluable in the start of the data collection for this project, while the staff at Pisacane GmbH have been invaluable since then. Ming Gu and Nicholas Lawson (at Princeton) and Peter Ondko (Prague) provided efficient assistance in the subsequent processing of the data. Financial support was provided initially with the assistance of the McKinsey Global Institute and subsequently by the Industrial Relations Section, Princeton University. The views expressed herein are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
