Abstract: The high inflation and high unemployment occurring throughout the OECD in recent years have resulted from a complex interaction of contractionary supply and demand factors as outlined by Bruno and Sachs (1985). Their empirical work showed the "real wage gap" to be a very important supply side factor in determining unemployment since the late 1960s. In this paper we measure the real wage gap for Ireland, explain its development over time and compare results with the OECD experience.
